Featured Artist 2016 – Philippa Nielsen

The talented Philippa Nielsen is creating Tree Support  for the 2016 Harbourview Sculpture Trail. This work represents a playful collaboration with the landscape and an inquiry into the ways humans attempt to converse with other living beings.

Philippa says, “I am interested in everyday interactions, finding ways to look more closely and make new connections. I want to consider the comic possibility that we aren’t an entirely necessary part of nature, while at the same time remaining hopeful that we can learn to collaborate more usefully with our planet”.

Philippa Nielsen has a Master of Art + Design (Visual Arts, AUT 2012) and an ongoing interest in the extraordinariness of the everyday.
