About

Tiana Jefferies is a Meanjin (Brisbane) based artist working with projected moving image, photogrammetry and casting techniques to form sculptural installations. Her practice offers a framing of affective thresholds to promote the vibrancy among inanimate bodies. Work is motivated by the premise that affect resides in a body’s proximal space as a relational field, available for co-participation. Negative space between body and object are engaged through movement practice and casting processes in an attempt to materialise these affective registers. Original and cast objects form the visual language for installations with the aim to communicate a meshy ecosystem with no centre, periphery or hierarchy.

Jefferies is currently completing her Masters of Philosophy in Experimental Creative Practice at the Queensland University of Technology. In 2018, she completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the Queensland College of Art with a Griffith Award for Academic Excellence. In 2017, she completed a study exchange at Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland.
