Sofie Dieu, (Detail) charcoal, ink and paper on board. 

Artist in Community

November 2019 to January 2020


The Lane exhibition will feature Latrobe City Artist in Community Sofie Dieu and the artwork that she created during her Artist in Community residency at Moe Library in May 2019. The charcoal, ink and paper artworks created during the residency were infused with poetry drawn from the poetry writing session that she hosted. The works created stand as a response to environmental disasters that have affected our community. 

‘I am a culturally and linguistically diverse poet and visual artist. Humanistic, my work resides at the intersection of personal narratives,
environmental art and recovery processes.’ 

‘In my practice, I explore how identity, emotions, and memory fluctuates according to our immediate environment. Landscapes, people, healing, and the dichotomy between light and darkness are some of the recurring themes that I explore.’
