+ Had an amazing three months at The Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris at the Rosamond McCulloch studio residency. Created new video work, and experimented with 2D imagery.
+ some very kind words on the work created for New Alchemists :
A microcosm of the elemental processes of transformation and symbiosis, the work is an alchemical mix of mechanical and air-propelled ephemera, light projections creating reflections on water, rocks, crystals, plastic ephemera and organic detritus under perpetual stimulus. Reminding us of the interconnectivity of all things, Phillipe-Janon’s exquisite componentry offers a view of a unified system built on notions of dependency and fragility.

Jerry On the Katabatic Wind by Nadege Philippe-Janon serves as the exhibition’s climax. The artwork collects data from a custom-made weather station outside the gallery and transforms it through a series of projections that are refracted and reflected about the darkened room in which this delicate structure sits. This work plays with light and is a delicate and spectral invocation, closing a loop of cosmic creation initiated by the conjurings of stardust and the cosmic that every one of the works contained in this exhibition sits beneath.
Art with Andrew Harper, The Mercury magazine
Nadege Philippe-Janon’s Jerry on the Katabatic Wind is mesmerising. The artist is known for her miniature environments made with everyday objects onto which corresponding images are projected. Patterned light bounces off strategically placed mirrors and glass onto the ceiling, walls and visitors, highlighting small objects tucked into the high wooden beams or clustered in the darkened corners…It’s a magical environment…

+ I’ll be showing new work created for New Alchemists, curated by Dr Alicia King, showing at Salamanca Art Centre from July 23rd until the 28th of August. Am humbled to be showing alongside some great artists including Art Orienté Objet (France), Michaela Gleave (Aus), Ian Haig (Aus), Oron Catts & Ionat Zurr (in collaboration with Corrie van Sice), Thomas Thwaites (UK) and Lu Yang (China).
Jerry on the Katabatic Wind was created with technical assistance from artist and lecturer Bill Hart, Morgan Hart, and with sound created by musician and composer Leni Philippe-Janon.
