Madeleine Sherburn (Australia) Residence: February 2020
Madeleine Sherburn is a Melbourne based emerging artist, graduating from Photography Studies College in 2019, obtaining a Bachelors Degree in Photography, Majoring in Fine Art. As she expands her practice from photography to other mediums; such as video, performance, installation and text, Madeleine’s work tends to question her own placement within the roles and rituals that are abided by modern western society. With a particular focus on how this coerces our past, present and future.
During her residency at Studio Kura, Madeleine wishes to respond to her new experiences, particularly through both the physical and metaphysical contact and its implications on the environment. By reflecting upon the landscape of Itoshima and its surroundings, she wishes to communicate the organic and natural’s connection with the impressions that the body and the self leave, and vice versa. From this research in an entirely new environment, she intends to gain greater insight into her evolving practice.
