Ms Sasmita uses a female figure as a form of art language to explore the complexity of women’s identity in politics. Old Mountain and Imaginary Pillars depicts women’s relationship with nature. When land ownership was institutionalised in a patriarchal society, women lost access to their lands which triggered them to be competitive.
