About Nadia Odlum
Born Sydney, 1991. She/they.
Nadia Odlum is a multidisciplinary artist from Sydney, Australia. Driven by a fascination with urban environments, Odlum creates playful and immersive works that explore personal and collective experiences of space and urban architecture.
Odlum often works site-specifically, with a practice that spans sculpture, drawing, painting, installation, artist-led workshops and performance collaborations. The works are inspired by movement, patterns and forms within the built environment, mirroring and abstracting these elements to form new spatial and material relationships. Central to Odlum’s practice is an investigation of perceptual experience, and how urban space impacts upon encounters and relationships between individuals and communities.
Odlum’s work has been shown in galleries and public spaces around the world. These include exhibitions at the Art Gallery of NSW, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and New York Transit Museum, as well as public art commissions for Urban Art Projects and Kaldor Public Art Projects.
