Amie Anderson is an Australian artist based in Melbourne who seeks to inquire into social systems and systems of knowledge through various projects, often exploring and documenting with archival methods of collecting and utilizing video, performance art and installation. Her work recurrently displays a strong interest in breaking down social barriers through art, creating opportunities for exchange and both inter-human relations and personal experiences. In pursuit of this, her work is approached as a kind of extrasensory investigation, one which invents new kinds of knowledge, sustains intuition, and disrupts our sense of ‘self’ in the world. Resulting works occupy both the space of the banal and the miraculous. The body, particularly her own, often becomes a natural extension of her work; a conduit through which actions and ideas flow, touching on the nature of our corporeal existence.
Amie, completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) in Sculpture and Spatial Practice at The Victorian College of the Arts, in 2012. Since graduating she has exhibited and performed in various group shows and collaborated with divergent artists and groups on artistic and socially engaged projects.
From 2013 -2016, Amie was a Co-director of the artist-run-initiative, The Food Court, an exhibition and Arts project space for emerging and established artists; with wider objectives of fostering artistic experimentation and interrogating the nature of social and public space.
Amie is currently an artist mentor and facilitator with Art Circle – Yooralla; an initiative that creates inclusive networks between artists with or without disabilities, leading to independent and visible practices within the arts community.
