Nina Ambjerg-Pederson

Nina Ambjerg-Pederson completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2014. Nina also won the prestigeous Majlis Travelling Scholarship 2014, which will see her head overseas later this year. She has exhibited and worked as an arts tutor, writer, director, producer, facilitator and performer! She also has a particular interest in community arts projects. You wouldn’t be wrong in guessing Nina is both a talented ball of enthusiastic energy, and a sponge, ready to soak up anything new to her.

As part of the Katherine Regional Arts ambitious SCULPTURES IN THE BUSH project, sculptor Nina Ambjerg-Pederson traveled to Lajamanu late April to conduct a week long JUNK SCULPTURE workshop with local artists. As you will see , and without giving too much away, there was some unique and decidedly AMAZING junk sculpture created.

Also part of the Katherine Regional Arts SCULPTURES IN THE BUSH project, sculptor Mark Swartz is currently in Ngukurr, while fiber artist and sculptor Aly De Groot is in Numbulwar. Given the success of Nina’s workshop, we are quite excited to see what these two final workshops produce.

All work created during the SCULPTURES IN THE BUSH project will be entrants to, and on display at the JUNK SCULPTURE CHALLENGE 2015 exhibition at the FINCH CAFE garden.
