Zarina Muhammad

Zarina Muhammad is an artist, educator, and researcher whose practice is situated at the intersection of the ecocultural cosmologies, mythical traditions, belief systems, and historical spectres of Southeast Asia. Often involving both human and non-human co-authors, Muhammad’s works are incarnations of her decade-long research and span the mediums of performance, installation, ritual, sound, moving image, and participatory practice. Her work operates as a mode of cultural translation, revitalizing oral histories and ethnographic literature in polyphonic and discordant ways. Muhammad participated in the Singapore Biennale (2022) and was the winner of the IMPART Art Prize (2022). She was also a finalist of both the Julian Baer Next Generation Art Prize (2021) and Singapore’s President’s Young Talent Award (2019).
