Nicole Foreshew

Nicole Foreshew is both artist and curator. Her works offers a thought on the objects of the Australian Aborigines today. Her video installations, ephemeral sculptures and performances seek to reactivate some ritual process involving spirituality, history, politics, race and identity, so that it consider the former and translate the present. By drawing personal connections to objects and places, her work goes beyond questions of aesthetic contemplation, blurring the sharp boundaries through people, parents and plant material found on the surface of the suburban architecture and extracted from landscapes of fertile land.


Nicole Foreshew lives and works in Sydney, Australia. She completed a Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication) at the University of Western Australia. She won the prestigious Neville Bonner Memorial price administered by the Australian National University Canberra in 2003. She served as assistant curator in the Department of Aboriginal arts and Islanders Torres Strait at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. In 2005, the artist has continued research in new media in New York and Mexico. She actively explores Australian Aboriginal art and takes part in international events like the Oz festival in New Delhi in 2012.
