Forum Artistic Research


Melissa Anne Ryke

Melissa Ryke’s practice focuses on a critical and playful investigation of the quotidian and experimentation with installation and time-based media. Through these mediums the notion of bodily experience in space is explored through a phenomenological framework. Recent projects have been focused on embodied listening. Ryke’s work has been screened and exhibited internationally, including at Kiosk (Ghent, BE), AADK (Blanca, ES), the Palais des Beaux Arts (Lille, FR), Seventh Gallery (Melbourne, AU), !MetroArts and Boxcopy (Brisbane, AU), and in Kepler’s Garden at Ars Electronica as part of Drums Radio (Linz, AT). She studied Fine Arts in Australia and France and has completed the European Postgraduate in Art in Sound at KASK, Ghent. Ryke is an Australian artist currently based in Brussels, Belgium. She is a teacher at the École Supérieure d’Art Dunkirk-Tourcoing and a PhD candidate at the ZHdK in partnership with Kunstuniversität Linz.
