Nadege Philippe-Janon is an emerging artist based in nipaluna/Hobart.
Straddling the thresholds of science, personal narrative, nature and culture, Nadege Philippe-Janon’s work examines our physical and learned ways of perceiving, often critiquing anthropocentric relations with the non-human world.
Her interests have led her across a diverse range of mediums and modes of art making; in past projects she has employed weather data to create responsive multi-media installations, manipulated the sun’s radiant heat to melt metals, explored the quirks of the visible spectrum, and attempted non-human perspectives through phone sexting.

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 including residencies in Japan, Paris, Mexico City and Jeju Island, Korea. Nadege was the 2017 recipient of the Shotgun program, and has most recently been selected as one of ten finalists for Hobart Current.
