About the artist

Michelle Vine is a contemporary artist from Sydney, now living and working in Brisbane. Through her practice she aims to get under the skin of things, to question and experience the machinations of producing sensation and knowledge. In recent years her focus was on the site of knowledge formation in biological science (with residencies, grants and research trips across outback Queensland and museums in Germany). Her recent work has seen her return to earlier concerns of embodiment, feminist presence and performative expression, now further explored through affect theory and sensory studies, with an emphasis on interactive touch.

Michelle’s work has appeared in House Conspiracy, POP Gallery, Queensland Museum, World Science Festival, The Walls ARI Miami, and Kunsthochschule Kassel Germany. In 2018 she won the Libris National Altered Book Prize for her work on the colonial botanist Amalie Dietrich.

In addition to her art practice, Michelle is part of the Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art teaching team for Studio Foundations (Fine Art/Photography) and is a sessional lecturer in Interactive Media Concepts within the Interactive Media program.
