Janet Laurence | 2020 Australian Antarctic Arts Fellow


Congratulations to Janet Laurence who has been announced as the recipient of the 2020 Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship. 

“Janet will spend time at Australia’s Casey research station to develop an immersive installation. The proposed installation will be based on extensive on-site research, including photographs, video works, drawings, watercolours, and collected writings on the Antarctic landscape and Casey station. “My aim for the project is to bring back a captivating experience of Antarctica’s preciousness and power to those that have never been,” said Ms Laurence. “I have expectations, and yet I know that the actual experience of Antarctica will open up unknown and far-reaching possibilities.”

The Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship has been running since 1984 and is supported by the Australian Antarctic Division with additional support provided by ANAT since 2017.”

Janet Laurence will undertake the residency in the 2021-22 season.
