16 Sep Sue Kneebone
Central to Sue Kneebone’s studio practice is the transformative process of mixed media assemblage and photomontage that allows for new associations to be made from fragmented clues found in historical texts, photographs, museums and archival material. Her interest in the legacy of Australian colonial settler culture has led her to explore the intersections between nature and culture, history and memory. Sue completed her Masters in Fine Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2000 and her PhD in visual arts at University of South Australia in 2010. Recent exhibition projects include Dark Manners at the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia (CACSA), The Mineral Kingdom at the South Australian Museum, and Naturally Disturbed at SASA Gallery. Group exhibition projects include Forces of Nature at the Australian Embassy in Washington, Eagle Lane public art light boxes for Brisbane City Council, The New New CACSA Contemporary 2010, and New South Australian Art, CACSA Contemporary 2012. Her work has been collected by the Art Gallery of South Australia and private collectors. Sue was a recipient of the 2011 Qantas Foundation Contemporary Encouragement Art Award, Australia Council and Arts SA grants.
