  • 2018

    Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey's work is driven by a curiosity and questioning about listening in human culture. Seeking to evolve and engage with new processes and audiences, through public and participative interventions. In 2017 they were awarded the prestigious Australia Council Award for Emerging and Experimental Artforms. Recently their practice has focused on water as listening site, existential risk, artificial intelligence in public space, and long form public art interventions.

    • 2017

      Theia Connell will develop a new series of performance-based videos and sculptural works at Incheon Art Platform. She will focus on the unique Korean concepts of ‘kibun’, a word with no English equivalent, but akin to pride, face, mood, or state of mind, and ‘nunchi’, a form of subtle listening and gauging the other person’s mood.

      Khadim Ali will be exploring Korean tradition and mythology in relation to contemporary social and cultural issues at MMCA residency Goyang.  The multi-disciplinary artist will then return to NSW to join Korean artist Heo Subin at BigCi in the Blue Mountains.

    • 2016

      Anna Horne is a sculptor whose practice focuses on process and materiality. Her work references domestic objects and space through the use of commonplace materials. Since 2008, Horne has exhibited frequently in local and interstate galleries, and in 2011 her work was published in FELT GOLD: A Survey of Emerging Contemporary Art Practice in South Australia. In 2012 she was awarded a residency at Sydney's Artspace and undertook a residency in New Delhi in 2013. She was a finalist in the John Fries Award and Artmonth 20/20 Event at Carriageworks in 2014. At  Gachang Art Studio in Korea, Anna developed a new body of work interrogating the connections between accumulations of objects.

      Marilyn Schneider is a Sydney based artist whose practice is concerned with the visual language of architectural facades, the surfaces and logos in commercial spaces and what they reveal about our culture. Marilyn’s sculptural installations are aligned with the commercial theming and structure of her chosen sites. Using synthetic and industrial materials her works imitate the manufacturing methods of high capitalism. Isolated in the gallery space, these manipulated forms take on new meanings that communicate the deceptive and seductive nature of corporate architecture. At MMCA Residency Goyang Marilyn  developed new work, reflecting on hybrid styles and characteristics of modern architectural form.
