    Her main focus lies in the connections between perception, memory, place and movement. She combines elements of photography, drawing, writing and painting; sometimes in the form of an itinerary; a part fact, part fiction travelogue through time, space, memory or mind.

    Currently moving towards making artist books, time at Hospitalfield will be spent on two publications where both words and image play a role.

  • Michele Brody

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2020

    Michele Brody is a mixed-media environmental artist based in The Bronx. Her work is inspired by the range of communities she has come in contact with while living and working as an artist-in-residence throughout the United States and abroad. Her practice is informed by a desire to understand how we manage the constant state of entropy we live in, and the ephemeral qualities of memory and experience within the constant flux of life. During her time at Hospitalfield she plans to focus on her writing as she prepares to publish books documenting two long-term projects. These include: a series of travelogues she has been writing since 1998 when she first started working as an artist-in-residence in France. The second is an interactive community-based project of sharing tea and stories titled “Reflections in Tea.”
