Nadège Philippe-Janon is an emerging artist based in nipaluna/Hobart.
Nadège frequently works at the intersections of science, nature, culture and personal narrative to question our physical and learned ways of perceiving, often critiquing anthropocentric relations with the more-than-human world. Her work interrogates forms of perception, material manipulation, and the inextricably interlinked and dynamic nature of systems, beings, and objects. These interests have led her across a diverse range of mediums and modes of art making. Past projects have ranged from employing weather data to create responsive multi-media installations, harnessing the sun’s radiant heat to melt metals, attempting non-human perspectives via sexting, and casting off on the Tasman sea in a handmade boat.
Nadège has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and has been awarded numerous grants including residencies in Tasmania, Japan, Paris, Mexico City and Jeju Island, Korea. Nadège was the 2017 recipient of the Shotgun program, a partnership project between Detached Cultural Organisation, the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), and Contemporary Art Tasmania, and was selected for the inaugural biennale art prize ‘Hobart Current’ in 2020. She recently delivered a major public art project along the Franklin-Gordon river commemorating the Franklin Dam protests. As part of her role on the board of Constance ARI, Nadège voluntarily manages and coordinates various projects across Tasmania.
