about Sujata

Sujata Majumdar (b.1976, London) is a visual artist based in Amsterdam. She is interdisciplinary by nature, with a background in Photography, Physics, and Information Technology.

Her background in different disciplines and cultures (British, of Indian descent, residing in the Netherlands since 2001) drives her artistic endeavour and pushes her to always seek balance. Her photographs show her fascination for patterns, especially at the shifting boundary of nature and man-made. Recognisable in her photographic style is scientific two-dimensional representation, such as physics diagrams and microscopy slides. Her lens-based visual imagery drives her interdisciplinary explorations.

She is currently Head of Conceptual Photography at the Institute of Unnecessary Research and part of a two-year exhibition programme at Cyclic Matter.
