Artist and academic, lfp_gardens collaborative garden director
Represented by STATION, Senior Lecturer at UNSW Arts, Design and Architecture

Dr Clare Milledge is a mid-career artist, living and working on unceded Garigal, Bidjigal and Gadigal land.

Milledge's work re-examines contemporary environments with a focus on our engagement with ecology through the historical figure of the artist-seer. Working with fieldwork, she collaborates with poets, sound artists and ecologists to create installation environments incorporating glass paintings, textiles, experimental sound and performance.

She exhibits regularly at commercial galleries, contemporary art organisations, state museums and university galleries. Her work is held in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, Buxton Contemporary, Monash University Museum of Art, Ten Cubed and Artbank.

A recent career highlight is her installation “Imbás: a well at the bottom of the sea” curated by José Roca for the 23rd Biennale of Sydney: rīvus in 2022.

Recently she has been working with landscape architects to reimagine spaces through an artistic-poetic-ecological lens. She is interested in consulting, panels, talks and collaboration.
