Mariele Neudecker, one of the contemporary artists in Tempest, is travelling from the UK to participate a small number of events, including this very special Friends talk and viewing.
She will speak to us about her art practice: her artwork is influenced by German Romanticism and her travel to some of the most awe-inspiring places on Earth, including Antarctica and Australian deserts. She notes that the influence of humanity is everywhere apparent, from the deepest crevices in the oceans to the top of the highest mountains, and is concerned that we have impacted on the natural environment to such an extent that it has marked the geographical record.
Mariele Neudecker was born in 1965 in Düsseldorf, Germany and lives and works in Bristol, England. She completed a BA Hons at Goldsmiths’ College London in 1990, and an MA (Sculpture) at Chelsea College of Art & Design in 1992. Neudecker has a very substantial exhibition record.
Her artwork in the Tempest exhibition, titled 4.7 km = ~3 Miles or ~ 2.5 Nautical Miles, warns against imminent disaster.
Mariele Neudecker’s visit to Tasmania has been supported by the Tasmanian College of the Arts, University of Tasmania, the Multidisciplinary Environment Research Group, University of Tasmania and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.
