Maisarah Kamal

b. 1992, Singapore
Lives and works in Singapore

Maisarah Kamal is a Singaporean visual artist searching for the unordinary life of objects. With an emphasis on found materials in industrial areas such as scrapyards and in nature, Maisarah Kamal creates sculptures that are mundane and absurd as a result of intuitive experimentation and reflection over time. Her sculptures are cut, bent, hammered, drilled, tied together, polished and then sanded, exposing certain energies and associations. Her work aims to trigger self-reflection in order to expound on existential ideas which she often ponders, of time, rhythm, movement and loss.

Maisarah holds a BA (Hons) in Fine Arts (First Class Honour) from LASALLE College Of The Arts, Singapore. She is also the recipient of the Anugerah Mendaki Award in 2019, and the Goh Chok Tong Promise Award in 2017. Alongside her practice as a visual artist, she is an educator. Maisarah is also part of ‘Tekad Collectif’, a group of young independent educators based in Singapore.
