Michaela Gleave

Michaela Gleave is contemporary artist based in Sydney, Australia. Inspired by a deep appreciation of the beauty and wonder of the natural world, her projects examine our relationship to time, matter and space, seeking to illuminate the ways in which we perceive, and understand the world around us. Focusing on the changing intersections between art, science and society, her works respond to a very human experience of the universe, referencing science and the space of the sky as a means of exploring the limits and potentials of existence.  Michaela's work has been exhibited extensively across Australia as well as internationally. She has participated in residency programs at the ISCP in New York City, Tokyo Wonder Site in Japan, and was a resident artist with CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science during 2012–13. She won the 2015 Churchie National Emerging Art Prize and was awarded a Creative Australia Fellowship from the Australia Council for the Arts (2013). Her recent exhibitions include: 'Bristol Biennial: In Other Worlds', Bristol, UK, 2016; 'Aufstiege (Assents)', KulturRegion Stuttgart, Germany, 2016; 'Trace: Performance and its Documents' at the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, 2014; 'A Day is Longer than a Year' (solo) at the Fremantle Arts Centre, Western Australia, 2013; 'Our Frozen Moment' (solo) at The Carriageworks, Sydney, 2012; 'Octopus 11: The Matter of Air' at Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne, 2011; and 'A Perfect Day to Chase Tornados (White)' at the Kunstquartier Bethanian, Berlin, 2010.   Michaela Gleave is represented by Anna Pappas Gallery, Melbourne.
