Previous Resident Artists
Megan Robert - Artist in Residence: Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre
"It's such an exciting opportunity to be given the artist residency at Kimbriki. Found objects are materials I love to use in my art practice as they already come loaded with history, purpose and meaning.
I like to rewrite their script and give them a new life in a different way with a new meaning and purpose. It's going to be fun, challenging and a meaningful experience for me as an artist as the message of recycling is reinforced." Megan Robert
Nadya E Anderson - November 2015 to April 2016
Nadya is a treasure hunter, beachcomber and bower bird. A sculptor, designer of objects, costumes, environments/spaces and visuals. Art, Music and Dance are her soul food.
"As ‘Artist in Residence’ at Kimbriki, I have entered a world of discarded materials and objects that constantly stimulate my imagination. I am surprised by the useful and often beautiful things people throw away, and love the challenge involved in re-interpreting and re-purposing these discarded objects and materials, to give them a new life by transforming them into works of Art. As an environmentalist my aim is to re-use existing materials to prolong their useful life, preserving the energy spent on their manufacture by keeping them in circulation, all-be-it in another form. I make objects that I hope will find their way into peoples homes, for them to enjoy as part of their everyday living experience." Nadya E Anderson
