Jo Scicluna

Australia,

Jo Scicluna is a Melbourne-based artist. She has exhibited locally and internationally within gallery and public contexts, working in photo-sculptural and video installation. Scicluna approaches photography as a pliable component of a site responsive, spatial practice. Motivated by her personal experience of cultural displacement as a first-generation Australian, Scicluna employs an expansive interpretation of the landscape genre and the fieldwork process as vehicles for cross-cultural exchange. Her practice engages questions of identity and belonging in relation to place, seeking to explore, reveal and magnify the subtle historical and elemental mechanisms of place.

 

In 2014, Scicluna was the winner of the Pat Corrigan AM Acquisitive Prize at Melbourne’s Centre for Contemporary Photography and in recent years has been shortlisted for numerous national awards. She has works held in a number of public and private collections across Australia.

 

Scicluna has lectured extensively across fine art, photography, design and architecture at the Victorian College of the Arts, Monash and RMIT Universities. She is currently a PhD candidate in Fine Art at Monash University’s School of Art, Design and Architecture (MADA).
