International environmental artist Sally Kidall creates vast site-specific interventions within challenging natural and urban locations and beyond the restraints of the gallery and has over 35 years of experience. She endeavours, through her practice, to inspire and challenge a wider audience, evoking thoughts/questions and stimulating discussion. Currently based in Australia she travels widely to create her engaging ephemeral installations.

She is a regular exhibiter at the coastal cliff walk for Sculpture by the Sea_Bondi, Australia, exhibiting in Auckland’s saltbush Harbourview Sculpture Trail, New Zealand, urban waterways in Gongju City for Yatoo Geumgang Nature Art Biennale, Korea, a miner’s cottage for Sculpture at Scenic World, Katoomba, Australia, a freshwater lake at UWS Sculpture Awards, Sydney and a volcanic island site for Tufi’Arts, Grand Canaria, Spain.

In 2015 Kidall was a feature artist for Step in Stone, a vast quarry based project funded by Arts Council England UK, and represented Australia in Kiev, Ukraine at the inaugural International Contemporary Sculpture Festival 2012 in collaboration with Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK. 2017 & 18 short listed for Arte Laguna_Land Art prize, Venice and invited to Global Nomadic Arts Project, France and travelled to India to collaborate in The Story of Space 2017, City of Panjim, plus exhibited at the Museum of Goa, India.

In 2018 she exhibited as part of the Biennale of Australian Art, Victoria and in 2019 she will create new installations in the Netherlands, Andorra, USA and France.

In 2006 Kidall completed her Masters at Portsmouth University, UK and in 1983 completed her BA Honours in Sculpture at Norwich School of Art.

“Through site-specific environmental installations and photography I seek to challenge the predictability of expectations & ‘cultural homogeneity’. My art practice is inspired by the complexities, equilibrium and fragility of the natural environment and by the ways in which our man-made systems work within, or in opposition to, these natural systems. The focus of my practice is the concept of transition, including notions of unpredictability, vulnerability, deterioration and ephemerality. It is informed by issues relating to human ecology, cultural displacement, consumption and materialism”.
