After Falls Creek Art and Culture Residency in Victoria (December 2019) and CARSS residency in NSW (February 2020), I continue to develop Water Ritual. It includes photo-painting and video performance.

This body of work sits at the cross road of womanhood, environment and rituals. The complete work will be exhibited this year in August at Kingston Arts Centre, in September at Track Gallery, in October at Westall Hub.

 

This project started at Lizières in June 2019 with The Odyssey, which includes Mud RitualWater Ritual and Longing for Home. These works will travel to Paris at Sometime Studio in November and to Lizières in December 2020.

Born in France, Sofie Dieu’s first encounter with art was through church. With a penchant for ritual and spirituality, the artist is best known for her fragile, sombre, and sometimes violent ink paintings and textile works.

 

Poetic and humanist, her practice draws on her journeys to China and Australia. She explores how identity and memory fluctuate according to their immediate environment. Landscapes, people, secrecy, healing, and the dichotomy between light and darkness are some of her recurring themes.

  

Multi-art prizes and award finalist, her work was included in the Sydney North Art Prize, Waterhouse Natural Science prize and the Contemporary Art Award amongst others. In 2016, she worked on the Camperdown Cemetery installation for Sydney Biennale. In 2017, her work will be shown during Vivid and Mental Health Month in Sydney.
