Jodie Whalen

Art Forms: Multi disciplinary, Sculpture, Sound Art, Video/film

Residency Year: 2023

Lives / Works: Gadigal and Darug Land Sydney and Western Sydney

Whalen appropriates her personal history and popular Western culture into emotionally fraught, symbolically dense, sublime environments- Filled with liminal spaces, personal ritual, and transitory moments.

Her works are created as a site of contemplation and inward reflection for viewers through ritual and repetition – engaging with how meaning moves and translates. Imagery, sounds, and motifs signify time and transformation, and the sublime – Windows to different realms of physical, metaphysical, and spiritual possibilities. Symbols of earthly experience and liminal space become metaphors of our understanding and experience with the unknown and our place within it.

Living and working on Gadigal and Darug Land (Sydney and Western Sydney). Whalen graduated from The University of New South Wales- Art and Design with a Master of Fine Art in 2013. Her work has shown at Carriageworks, Artspace, Museum of Contemporary Art, Performance Space, Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art, Campbelltown Arts Centre, Next Wave.

 

In Residence at Bundanon

Whalen will focus on creation of a new body of site and time specific work. Engaging the site of Bundanon, recording and sampling digital image and sound, at repetitive, ritual intervals everyday from Sunrise to sunset for the duration of the residency. Inviting communication and conversation between artist, technology and nature,a continuation of my desire to give the intangibles of fraught emotional states; grief, anger, fear apathy, love and hopefulness a form and physical presence.
