Carla Busuttil

I am a Birmingham based, South African born artist.The work I make is engaged with ideas around the politics of social structures, and the genealogies of power. I am particularly interested in looking at ideas around private versus public space, and the shape of ‘The Commons’. I work mainly in paint, but have sometimes included other materials such as video, installation and photography in my practice.

As a newcomer to the city, being a cultural citizen allows me access to a space, within a progressive art organisation, in which I can actively learn, exchange experiences and formulate ideas for making art as a collective good.
