Georgia Saxelby is an interdisciplinary artist whose research-driven practice investigates the relationship between art, architecture, ritual and cultural meaning. Her practice engages with issues of public social space, collective ritual behavior and sacred space in both ancient and contemporary cultures. Georgia creates ephemeral, transitory experiences and spaces in which her audience are invited to perform and participate. The artist is concerned with creating new modes of exchange value and facilitating moments of collectivity in which audiences must negotiate between symbolic objects and each other. Two of her recent interactive installations were presented as finalists in the Blake Prize, Australia’s oldest and one of its most prestigious art prizes. They were the first performative works ever chosen in the prize’s history.
