Mark Friedlander




Mark Friedlander’s works and lives in Naarm (Melbourne), Australia. 

His practice reveals a curiosity with the interrelationship of architectural, sculptural, and photographic space. Small sculptural elements reflect an attentiveness to the possibilities of materials and their associated processes. 

He is in Takeo on a shared research project with Corinna Berndt, as well as continuing work on his PhD which considers: to what extent and in what kinds of ways do the negotiation of risk shape the production, reception, and interpretation of artworks.

Mark runs the Teaching Workshop at the Victorian College of the Arts where he has lectured in

Sculpture. He received his Batchelor of Fine Art (Painting) from Wimbledon School of Art (London), a Graduate Diploma of Education (Fine Art, Art History) from the University of Melbourne, a Master of Fine Art from the Victorian College of the Arts (Melbourne), and is currently undertaking his PhD with the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music at the University or Melbourne.
