After commencing her studies in Environmental Science, Nadège went on to complete a bachelor of fine arts at the Queensland College of Arts and received First Class Honours at the Tasmanian College of the Arts. She has since exhibited widely both nationally and internationally, and has been awarded numerous grants including residencies in Japan, Paris, Mexico City and Jeju Island, Korea. Nadège was the 2017 recipient of the Shotgun program, and has most recently been selected as one of ten finalists for Hobart Current. Nadège is currently on the board of Constance ARI.

Nadège Philippe-Janon works at the intersections of science, nature, culture and personal narrative to question our physical and learned ways of perceiving, often critiquing anthropocentric relations with the non-human world. Adopting a diverse range of mediums and modes of art making, her work interrogates forms of perception, material manipulation, and the interlinked and dynamic nature of systems, beings, and objects.
Imbued with an awareness of the art-making and exhibiting process, her often rudimentary and site specific installations aim to elude spectacle. These makeshift works retain a fragility and transparency, invoking a sense of instability and transience within human and non-human ecologies.
Past projects have ranged from employing weather data to create responsive multi-media installations, harnessing the sun’s radiant heat to melt metals, attempting non-human perspectives via phone sexting, and casting off on the Tasman sea in a handmade boat.
