Meet the Tutor: Sofie Dieu
Born in France, Sofie Dieu is a culturally and linguistically diverse artist. Her first encounter with art was through church. With a penchant for ritual and spirituality, her work is best known for its fragility and darkness. Sensitive to cultural cliches, she has developed from it a penchant for the non-obvious and what makes us unique.
Multi-art prizes and award finalist, Sofie Dieu's work was recently included in John Leslie Art Prize, Hornsby Art Prize, Sydney North Art Prize, Ravenswood Australian Women’s Art Prize, among others.
In 2016, she was one of the four artists who worked on the Camperdown Cemetery installation for the Sydney Biennale. She also co-curated « Keeping the body in mind » as part of The Big Anxiety Festival, in Sydney.
In 2017, she took part to the Great Alpine Artist in Residence Program, from which ensued Calling for Rain. This Community project was at the start of a long term collaboration with the region and traveled in 2018 from Gippsland to Sydney and Melbourne.
In 2019, Sofie Dieu worked with Latrobe Regional Gallery and Creative Gippsland for their Artist in Community Program (Latrobe Literacy Festival). This year, Dieu also participates to Lizières (Fr.) and Falls Creek (VIC) residencies.
