Amalya Megerman is a New Jersey-based visual artist, working from a feminist anthropological base. Through a language of eggshells, sand, bones, spices, and fabric, she works through themes of gender, family, intergenerational trauma, time, anxiety, and the body. She fashions visual, aural, and aromatic materials into immersive installations and sculptures, shaping emotional experiences that are equally visceral to the physical mediums she works in.
For three years, her practice was based in China, which has deeply influenced her work.
Megerman graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University, where she studied Anthropology, Visual Art, and Chinese Language and Culture.
