Artist in Residence: Chantal Fraser

Collaborate with artist Chantel Fraser to create a large-scale artwork .

Chantal Fraser is a Meanjin/Brisbane-based Sāmoan artist whose multimedia practice explores ornamentation and cultural adornment as an aesthetic resolution to identity and individuality.

As Artist in Residence, Chantal invites you to collaborate with her on a large-scale artwork through a series of free drop-in creative workshops.

In these free workshops, you will be inspired to create your very own ‘hybrid creature’ by collaging upcycled materials.

While making your hybrid creature, you will be asked to reflect on how each part contributes to the whole, and how this notion relates to your sense of self and the community.

After the workshops, Chantal will physically and digitally manipulate the collages to create a series of botanical designs. These will be arranged into a very special ‘hybrid garden’ and installed as an artwork in the Dome Gallery.

MoB’s Artist in Residence Program is supported by Tim Fairfax AC.
