Lisa Anderson


Tiga Tiga, video and sculptural installation, Blue Mountains, Australia.

Dr Lisa Anderson works across a broad range of media creating images, films and prints that explore issues of weather and its consequences including the movement of peoples and animals, the shifts in legends and mythology specific to locations, and the effects of climate change in our global environment.

Recent exhibitions include Huldefolke, a photographic series in Skargarstrond, Iceland, working with the mythology and religious beliefs in the unseen or hidden folk, Beneath the Architecture of Beauty which comprised neon and photographs in London, and a sculptural intallation in Beijing, Clouds in the Beijing Breeze, which references childish joy with gifts and the abundance of stories with clouds of gold. Further sculptural work includes a temporary installation work Precious that uses 4,000 wine glasses to use a fairytale ambience to capture water and light in a forest beside the sea in Arhus in Denmark, andTiga Tiga, a video and sculptural installation at Scenic World in the Australian Blue Mountains and in Contested Landscape for Ten Days on the Island, Tasmania. Tiga Tiga will also form a part of the Lorne Sculpture Biennale in 2014.

Anderson exhibits regularly in Sydney, London and Beijing and is included in major private and public collections. Her residencies include Arctic adventures as artist on a Russian icebreaker, as well as exploring UNESCO sites in the Bay of Biscay and, more recently, the Antarctic aboard the MV Fram, travel in remote Australia, Central java, the UK and other sites with weather-specific stories as the stepping point for the works Dr Anderson creates with her company The Shiny Shiny World.

Anderson spent three months at Rimbun Dahan in 2013, creating 3D video pieces for installation in various locations using the unique gardens, water features and dancers of the area in the final work.
