Sita Mistry

Sita Mistry questions the definitions of national identity which are set out by politics and educational institutions. Mistry’s work is communicated through the use of print incorporated with sculpture and installation. Her work juxtaposes political imagery against references to the British Empire whilst using objects to explore how museums display colonial history from a British viewpoint. Her work aims to highlight colonial atrocities and break down the romanticising of the British Empire. She addresses the Brexit ‘Leave’ campaign to investigate imperial nostalgia and how this has impacted upon British national identity.
