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 visiting lecturer in the UK and in Scandinavia. Current and recent institutions include Portsmouth University, Camberwell College of Arts, UK and Akademin Valand, Gothenburg, Sweden.
