BROOKE FERGUSON - Artist In Residence, February - May 2021Find out moreApply
We look forward to welcoming Perrin Millard as our next resident artist to The Shed in May.
Perrin Millard is an interdisciplinary artist, exploring the freedom of painting across multimedia including digital, performance, photography, theatre, and sculpture. A collective art practice that incorporates ideas of the Sublime through immersion and interactivity, to create an opportunity for the viewer to have a physical, social, and or, spiritual engagement with the work. Using interactive experiences, she interrogate the shifting acquaintance we have with art history by connecting contemporary art practices with classical and art-historical methodologies. Utilising the elemental phenomena of the sky, Millard explores the familiarity we have with our natural world to evoke memory, emotion, physical responses, and to reflect on how our senses can hold onto past experiences. This constant, yet changing face of nature provides a means of addressing atemporality, spatiality, natural forces, and our place in the world.
Sculptors Queensland is working with 4 artists in 2021. SQ supports and assists each Artist in Residence to facilitate the development of new work and to introduce them to broader networks within Brisbane's community and surroundings. Each artist has access to SQ's facilities for 3 months, where they will present a range of public programs, such a forum, workshop or exhibition.
