Nadège Philippe-Janon is an emerging artist based in lutruwita/Tasmania.
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. 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 recently selected for the inaugural biennale art prize ‘Hobart Current’, and she has delivered major public art projects including ‘Forest Specular’ – situated along the Franklin-Gordon river to commemorate the Franklin Dam protests. As part of her role on the board of Constance ARI, Nadège voluntarily manages and coordinates various projects across Tasmania.
