artisan IN RESIDENCE | Dian Suci
Relevant links: In-Conversation Event
Multidisciplinary artist Dian Suci is completing her artist in residency program with artisan. Hailing from Indonesia, Diane creates her own paint pigments from plants she forages. During her stay, she has applied her processes, eagerly learning from local craftspeople who share her passion - particularly those with knowledge of native Australian plants and minerals.
"Dian comes from one of the most exciting and vibrant art scenes in the Southern Hemisphere. This is your opportunity to connect and find out more about her work and homeland."
- CASSANDRA LEHMAN, CREATIVE CO-DIRECTOR
Dian's residency with artisan will run from 21 September - 21 October
DEBRA PORCH AWARD
artisan are proudly hosting the Debra Porch Award being offered by The Australia Council.
Debra Porch was a friend and former exhibitor of artisan, and we are deeply honoured to be helping facilitate her legacy of practice-based inquiry. Debra Porch’s practice focused on memory, mortality and the relationship between presence and absence. Working and teaching during art residencies in our neighbourhood regions became vital to her art, work and life.
In honour of Debra Porch’s life’s work, this award will support the artists, and will stimulate strong connections and build long-term engagement. The residency will introduce the artists to the local sector and assist with research and network building with relevant communities. The artists will also have the option to share an artist talk or participate in a public program at the end of the residency period.
