Nadege Philippe-Janon is an emerging artist based in Hobart, Tasmania. Her creative process stems from a drive to manipulate objects and substances such as salt, glass, rock, magnets and metal, as well as animation, video, light, technology, text and sound. Straddling thresholds between science, personal narrative, nature and culture, her work examines our physical and learned ways of perceiving, often critiquing anthropocentric relations with the non-human world.
After commencing her studies in Environmental Science, Nadege went on to study Fine Art at the Queensland College of Art and received First Class Honours at the Tasmanian College of the Arts. Since then she has been awarded numerous grants and residencies including a Marie Edwards Traveling Scholarship to support self-directed research at the Citè international des arts, Paris, and an Asialink grant to create new work and conduct research in Hokkaido, Japan. Nadege was the 2017 recipient of the Shotgun program, and in 2018 was awarded a Claudio Alcorso travelling scholarship to participate in an intensive residency exploring sustainability with SOMA in Mexico City. In 2019 Nadege will be collaborating with artist Maria Blackwell during a Tasmanian wilderness residency supported by Arts Tasmania. Nadege is currently a board member of Constance ARI.
