Mariele Neudecker uses a broad range of media including sculpture, installation, film and photography to investigate the formation and historical dissemination of cultural constructs around the natural world, focusing particularly on landscape representations within the Northern European Romantic tradition and contemporary notions of the Sublime. Central to the work is the human interest and relationship to landscape and images used metaphorically for human psychology. German-born Mariele Neudecker studied at Goldsmiths Collage and Chelsea School of Art and Design, and now lives and works in Bristol. She is nationally and internationally recognised, and has shown in Biennales in Japan, Australia and Singapore, as well as solo shows at the Ikon Gallery, Tate St Ives and Tate Britain.

In her Art Forum presentation Mariele will discuss her practice and sources of inspiration, reflecting on her recent work 4.7 km = ~ 3 Miles or ~ 2.5 Nautical Miles, currently on exhibition in Tempest, at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.

Mariele’s visit to Tasmania has been supported by the Tasmanian College of the Arts, the Multidisciplinary Environment Research Group, University of Tasmania and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.

Mariele is also participating in another UTAS Event presented by MERG on 26 September:
