Nina Mangalanayagam is a visual artist working with still and moving image. She has a Masters in Photography from the Royal College of Art and a PhD by practice from the University of Westminster. In her practice, Nina explores themes of belonging and hybridity, often using a semi-autobiographical approach. Her research analyses the shifting points of identification she experiences as a mixed heritage subject, to explore the dichotomy of black and white notions of identity.
Nina is a lecturer at Akademin Valand in Gothenburg, Sweden, where she is currently responsible for the BA Photography degree programme. She has previously taught at institutions in the UK including Camberwell College of Arts, South Bank University and Westminster University.
