  • Sam Petersen is a Naarm-based visual artist, writer and performer who works primarily in site-specific installation and sculpture. Petersen’s artwork often references the limitations Petersen confronts when trying to access society as a person with disability. Petersen’s art practice can be thought of as a mode of activism, which is politically motivated and takes the body and its relationship to the built environment, and therefore people's minds, as conceptual starting points. Recent projects include; True Colours, 2021, Bus Projects, Melbourne, My Pee is Political, 2020, Darren Knight Gallery, I’m Still Feeling It: Overlapping Magisteria, The 2020 MacFarlane Commission, ACCA, Melbourne.
