Fringe Visual Art Residency

Art that walks off the walls

We are so excited to reveal Goodwood Theatre & Studio’s visual artists in residence for the upcoming 2024 Adelaide Fringe Season


Shani Engelbrecht

 

Shani is a multidisciplinary artist who was born to a German-Australian father and raised by a mother with Fijian-Indian heritage. She holds an Honours degree in Visual Arts (2022) and a Bachelor of Creative Arts (2021) from Flinders University. Her work explores her experience growing up in Australia and the feeling of being caught between two cultures. Race and identity are at the core of Engelbrecht’s practice as she interrogates the incidences of racism experienced by people of colour daily. Engelbrecht has shown works in multiple exhibitions including Hatched: National Graduate Show Exhibition (Perth Institute of
Contemporary Arts 2023), Vasl (Kerry Packer Civic Gallery 2023) not white/not brown (FELTspace 2023).


Aggie Stav

Aggie is an Adelaide artist who presents abstract acrylic paintings celebrating bold, bright colour palettes that express her absolute delight in layering paint onto her canvasses. “I started painting as a form of meditation, a mindfulness practice, the process so soothing to me, it became addictive. And so, the flowers of my childhood began to demand my attention. My
painting style is “loose floral abstract” and I paint with both acrylics and watercolours. My palette of choice is as bright as possible! I paint to spark joy, to bring colour into other people’s lives and homes, and because I must.”


Niccy Pallant

Niccy's artistic expression ranges from playful nostalgic relief prints, porcelain, and terracotta ceramics to found and formed objects. She is an adept craftsperson and bush woman who grew up in remote South Australia now residing in S.A’s capital city Tarntanya (Adelaide).


As an Artisan, she seeks to honour her lineage of craftspeople and people of the land in the style of her Artist Grandmother and Jack-of-all-trades father. Her practice investigates culture, community and craft. After 30 years as a Middle School Leader, Drama & Visual Art Educator, she has exhibited twice a year since 2017 at the Adelaide Fringe, South Australia’s History
Festival, South Australian Living Artist Festival, and this year for an International Print Exchange as a part of SA’s Nature Festival. She has been a guest presenter at National and International Festivals and events as an Educator and Artist.

 

 

Together they have created an immersive art experience Art that walks OFF the walls, installations and exhibitions exploring 3
collaborating local emerging and established artist's journey of seeking to belong. Wild acrylic florals talk and walk onto community walls, detailed autobiographical illustrations run barefoot alongside video streams of performance art
that leaps from the screens.

 


Art that Walks OFF the Walls has recently been awarded funding support through ARTS UNLIMITED, The Adelaide Fringe Foundation, and Arts South Australia.


We are so appreciative and cannot wait to support these exceptional artists and share this experience with you throughout the Adelaide Fringe season, Feb-March 2024.
