Seema Mattu

Seema Mattu

Seema Mattu is a Valmiki world-building trickster, whose multi-channel practice is framed as a theme park - known as SEEMAWORLD. Through the playful mimicry of intersecting amenities, visitors are prompted to portal around a fantastical framework weaved by the complexities of Seema’s own multi-faceted personhood.

With an interest in speculative storytelling linked to British South Asian culture and its roots in Seema’s home city, Birmingham (UK), SEEMAWORLD fuses CGI (computer-generated imagery) and IRL (in real life) environment-building, 3D character creation, mixed-media animation, fusions of organic, folk and punk sound design and visual spectacle to explore: systems of caste, queer desire, fan labour and gender biases within digital landscapes.

Seema has exhibited with Berwick Film and Media Festival, IKON gallery, Eastside Projects, New Art City, Blindspot Gallery and QUAD. In April 2022, she completed Film London’s FLAMIN Fellowship and a year-long residency with Wysing Arts Centre in March 2023. In December 2021, Seema became a QUAD International Digital Fellow, leading to her first major solo show in September 2023. She currently studies MA Animation at Royal College of Art (2023-24).
