Brisbane artist, Annelize Mulder works in sculpture, sound and video installations that speak to themes of migration and global movement. Mulder focuses on immigration from a personal perspective but also relates to a broad broad cultural perspective. The connection between memory and place features in her work, seeking to understand memory once instability is introduced. In recent work, the sculptures take a symbolic approach to focus on the embodied experiences of migration, especially for those that have difficult pasts. Mulder works with a diverse range of materials and approaches in the studio.
