South African-born visual artist, Annelize Mulder, is based in Brisbane, Australia. The experience of migration is deeply entwined in her practice, and she uses sculpture, installation, and multimedia to contextualise the significant bearing migration has on the lives of those who move countries. With the emotionally charged experiences of migration in mind, she seeks to make sense of memory’s potent pull that operates as attenuated connections which oscillate between clarity and obscurity. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) in 2016 and her Doctor of Philosophy in 2022, at the Queensland College of Art in Queensland.
Annelize has diverse experiences in the arts as both an artist and an arts worker. She has exhibited nationally and internationally showing her work in locations such as London, Johannesburg, and Tasmania. In recent solo exhibitions, she showcased Attenuated: The Shape of Migrated Memory at the Queensland College of Art (2022) and Vulnerable Bodies at Logan Art Gallery (2020). In 2020 Annelize was the recipient of the Arts Queensland, Regional Arts Services Network stART grant for a project titled Facing Forward, that focused on experimental artworks. She was selected as one of three artists in residence at Metro Arts (Brisbane) in 2018 and was selected to be in the first round of residencies for House Conspiracy in 2017 (Brisbane).
