Our Researchers

One of Batchelor Institute’s current PhD candidates is Jenny Fraser. A celebrated visual and digital artist, she was awarded in 2012 an Australia Council Fellowship. These fellowship grants provide support to practicing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists to enable them to undertake major creative projects in their artform. In 2012, there was a particular focus on artists working in experimental, media and hybrid arts.

Much of Jenny Fraser’s work as a screen-based visual artist, writer and curator defies categorisation. Through her fellowship she is challenging audiences with her digital storytelling project, Midden. Midden celebrates unsung heroes and previously unspoken events in a non-linear documentary. Jenny will use shells, along with screen-based and performance elements to enhance, reframe and remix stories, to create new ways of engaging audiences.
