Don’t Hesitate to Get in Touch
Caroline Phillips is a visual artist based in Melbourne, Australia, with a PhD from the Victorian College of the Arts/University of Melbourne (2017). Her studio practice is augmented by participatory and collaborative projects that build feminist community. Using sculpture and photography, Caroline is interested in reconfiguring relationships of power, sexual politics and embodied experience to re/present the relational art object as a feminist object. Through modes of connection and inter-relation in both her methodology and outcomes, her work re/imagines an ethical feminist future.
Phillips has been successful in securing grants and funding across a number of research, development and presentation projects including NAVA Australian Artists’ Grant, City of Melbourne Arts Project Grant, Creative Victoria VicArts Grant and the Copyright Agency Limited Creative Industries Career Fund Grant. She has undertaken a number of local and International artist residencies including Australian Tapestry Workshop Artist in Residence (Melbourne), Feminist Art Conference International Feminist Art Residency (Toronto), NARS Foundation International Artist Residency (Brooklyn, NY) and Art Gallery of New South Wales Moya Dyring Studio, Cité International des Arts (Paris). Phillips was the inaugural winner of the George Paton Gallery Proud Award (2009) where her work was acquired for the University of Melbourne Student Union Art Collection.
Her essay The Long Haul, Women’s Art Archives was published earlier this year in the book ‘She Persists, Perspectives on Women in Art & Design’, published by the National Gallery of Victoria (2020).
