Amalya Megerman is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary visual artist, working from a feminist anthropological base. Through a language of organic materials, including eggshells, sand, bones, spices, and fabric, her work probes questions related to gender, family, intergenerational trauma, complicity, decay, time, anxiety, and the body. She fashions visual, aural, and aromatic materials into immersive installations, sculptures, and performances, shaping visceral emotional experiences for her audiences. She also works in painting, sound, and photography.
For three years, her practice was based in China, which has deeply influenced her recent work. Born, raised, and educated in New Jersey, she graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University, where she studied Anthropology, Visual Art, and Chinese Language and Culture.
