Opening on 3 December, the NGV Triennial 2023 is a powerful and moving snapshot of the world today as captured through the work of over 120 artists, designers and collectives working at the forefront of global contemporary practice.
Joël Andrianomearisoa’s approach to his work is informed by his Madagascan heritage, a country of diverse cultural influences. The artist’s work encompasses sculpture, installation, craft and textiles, giving form to non-explicit, often abstract, narrations. Andrianomearisoa’s pastel works, textiles and sculptures depict texts that are often ambiguous, and are considered an ongoing series of exercises. He seeks to explore the aesthetic and architectural form of emotions and feelings, that, while they are universally felt, do not have a name.
