Citra Sasmita was born in 1982, Indonesia. She graduated from Physic Department Ganesha University of Education, Bali, Indonesia.
Sasmita put her concern and passion on women’s issues through her artistic practice. With the awareness as a Balinese woman growing in the midst of patriarchal culture, she loudly voices her criticism over the system that has been subordinating the role and formation of women’s identity. Through her visual language enriched in symbols, she elaborates the issues of identity, stigma and sexuality narrated through the image of the female body. The idea of voicing sacrifice, struggle, and hope, is presented in her third solo exhibition, entitled Under The Skin.
