Priscilla Beck is a writer, artist and arts worker based in lutruwita/Tasmania, where she has lived since 2015. Originally from Meanjin/Brisbane, her practice is a culmination of critical and creative works, each deeply connected to process and place, and facilitating contemporary creative projects in the community. Priscilla considers facilitating opportunities for others part of the creative process.
Priscilla’s practice is open-ended and speculative. She seeks subtlety within material-based installations and projects deeply connected to process and place. In recent years, her art and writing have been grounded in the materials and stories of place. She is interested in the way site-specificity can strengthen her work and draw out connections to histories, both personal and universal. Situating work in a specific place, such as the unique stories and landscape of the Country surrounding Queenstown, intuitively aligns with this way of working.
