Hybridity in Visual Art
Nina Mangalanayagam was born and grew up in Sweden with a Danish mother and a Tamil father. She uses her personal experience and family to explore the fluidity of identities that impact on, societies, families and social environments.
Her research investigates how photographic and video art can subvert visual stereotypes of otherness:
In my practice I explore cross-cultural identifications of the hybrid, using my own shifting points of identification to examine relations between constructed categories of black and white.

She graduated from the Royal College of Art, London in 2009 with a Masters in Photography.
