Nani Graddon is an artist, arts worker, and ceramicist based somewhere between nipulana and Gadigal and Bidjigal land of the Eora Nation. Nani has worked collaboratively in Sydney, Hobart, and Glasgow, organising, and exhibiting in group shows. She was a finalist in the 2022 Shelley Simpson Ceramics Prize, and is currently a board member of Constace ARI.
Nani’s artistic practice contemplates contemporary Australian Society and her place within it. She is interested in the institutionalisation of knowledge and how to encourage movement into stationary definitions of people, objects, and histories. She often starts her projects by finding ways to move through a chosen site, commonly walking, photographing, and writing to unearth a story or perspective.
Nani volunteers on the board of Constance ARI working curatorially to facilitate the presentation of emerging art. She utilises alternative spaces to bring together exhibitions open to all early career artists.
