Born Geelong, Australia 1988, currently based in Melbourne, Australia. Roberta Rich’s work responds to constructions of race and gender identity with satire and humour in her video, performance, installation and multi-disciplinary projects. Drawing from historical, socio-political, media and popular contemporary culture, Rich engages with notions of 'authentic' identity construction and attempts to challenge problematic representations while ascertaining empowering forms of self-determination, often referencing her own [diaspora] African identity and experiences.
