Annelize Mulder was born in South Africa and currently lives and works in Brisbane. Mulder’s art practice captures the complexities of migration that are compounded by moving from a country that is saturated with violence. Through an interdisciplinary approach, she articulates the role of memory in migration by incorporating various methods. Her material choices are concept-driven producing sculptures, installations, and multimedia works. Personal experiences and collective migrant experiences are filtered through her art practice and embed her work with remembrance and dissonance. In recent years, Mulder exhibited in London, Tasmania, Toowoomba, and Melbourne. She was also selected for a 6-month residency at Metro Arts and successfully obtained an Arts Queensland grant. Vulnerable Bodies, her most recent solo exhibition at Logan Art Gallery in Queensland, divulged the multifaceted experience of human migration.
