Anna Madeleine
< >

Anna Madeleine is a Sydney based emerging artist working in stop-motion animation and mixed media. She has just completed her PhD in media arts at College of Fine Arts, UNSW, and graduated with honours in photo media from ANU School of Art in 2007.

Her current work explores the nexus between art and technology, using mixed media and traditional frame-by-frame animation techniques to present a co-evolution of old and new technology and offset the familiarity of the digital in new media art.

She has exhibited solo and group shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Montreal, Los Angeles and London, and has been involved with several Australian and international residencies including Insight Radical (with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Free Radical Chemistry and Biotechnology, Melbourne University), Sydney Artspace, Splendid Arts Lab, Kala Arts Institute (Berkeley), CTRLab (Montreal) and Canberra Contemporary Art Space.
