Born in 1985 in Selangor (Malaysia), lives and works in London.
Mandy El-Sayegh works across diverse media to examine how social, cultural and political orders are formed and deconstructed in the contemporary world. In large- scale paintings, tabletop displays, immersive installations, performances, and videos, she mixes up together fragments of disparate information, interrogating the ways in which meaning might emerge from the relationship between these different source materials. The motifs are often repeated in several works, demonstrating how the meaning of information can change when placed in new contexts.
Graduated from the Royal College of Art, her work has been presented in solo exhibitions or performances at the Overbeck-Gesellschaft Kunstverein – Lübeck (2023), Centre Pompidou – Paris (2022), UTA Artist Space – Los Angeles (2022), at the Ropac gallery – Pantin (2021), at the Sursock Museum – Beirut, at Bétonsalon – Paris and at the Chisenhale gallery – London (2019) and in numerous group exhibitions.
