Anna Gleeson

Anna Gleeson is an Australian artist based in Hong Kong. Her practice spans painting, print-making and sculpture and she has an interest in materiality, humanness and the body.

Her ceramic practice is connected to punk rock: taking all that’s ugly and unlovable about oneself and putting it up there for all to see; her vessels hold broken dreams and failed attempts among other things.

“I’m interested in what happens when I push materials beyond what will work into failure. I deliberately set up new ways of working that mess with and complicate an existing mode of making. I’m curious to see how it will fail; what that failure might look like. Working this way feels connected to some of my earliest childhood memories of making – not being as good at it as I’d like, not having the right kind of glue and being anyway completely absorbed in the attempt,” says Gleeson.

Gleeson studied Media Arts at Sydney College of the Arts before exploring various media, and she has exhibited in Tokyo, Taipei, Hong Kong, Melbourne and Sydney.

We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first people of Australia. They have never ceded sovereignty, and remain strong in their enduring connection to land and culture.
