Ally Bisshop

is an artist, writer and researcher dividing her time between Sydney & Berlin.

Her research and process-driven practice combines sculpture, sound, image, film and text. Taking inspiration from subjects as varied as science/science fiction, mythology, process philosophy and nonhuman encounters, her work is an exploration of materiality as movement: experimenting with intensive variations in organic, geologic and temporal processes, and testing the porous categories of life/nonlife.

She studied science at the University of Queensland (B.Sc. Hons 1 Microbiology).

She studied art at the University of New South Wales Art & Design Sydney/ National Institute for Experimental Arts, and at the Universität der Künste, Berlin, through Olafur Eliasson’s Institut für Räumexperimente.

In 2018 she completed her practice-based PhD in visual arts (UNSW).
