Carla Busuttil Biography

Carla Busuttil (b. 1982, Johannesburg, South Africa) explores and addresses notions of power in a digital age, and she works across mediums; primarily paint, but also film, installation, digital media and sculpture. By platforming and interrogating the parallel themes of growing economic inequality and information abundance, much of Busuttil’s recent work looks at tendencies toward increased isolation and fortification, based on economic and technological strata.
