Priyageetha Dia's research delves into the complexities of identity politics and spatial relations of the Tamizh diasporic experience in Singapore and the Southeast Asian region.
Priyageetha Dia is an interdisciplinary visual arts practitioner working at the intersections of the biographical and cultural production of the Tamizh identity. Nurturing into speculative ﬁction and decolonial feminist thought, she works across digital animation, installation, and performance. Combining personal narratives and national histories to re-present the notion of the ‘future-past’, her practice unfolds the complexities of identity politics and spatial relations of the Tamizh diasporic experience in Singapore and the Southeast Asian region.
Priyageetha received her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore in 2017. Her works have been showcased in group exhibitions including ‘Attention Seeker’ (2022) at La Trobe Art Institute, Australia; ‘An Exercise of Meaning in a Glitch Season’ (2020) at the National Gallery Singapore; ‘2219: Futures Imagined’ (2019) at Art Science Museum Singapore; S.E.A Focus (2019) at Gillman Barracks, Singapore. She is also a resident for the 9th cycle of the NTU CCA Residencies Programme (Singapore) from April to August 2022. She received the IMPART Visual Artist Award (2019) by Art Outreach Singapore.
Priyageetha currently lives and works in Singapore.
