Meagan Streader’s work pushes the limits of light within sculpture and installation. Reflecting the Minimalist art of the Light and Space movement, Streader manipulates, reinterprets and extends upon the boundaries of constructed spaces. Through site-specific interventions, her multidimensional use of light re-orientates the viewer’s relationship to the pre-existing architecture and scale of a given space. In this way, Streader’s work reveals the pervasive role of light in governing physical and social navigations of fabricated spaces.
Streader is a Brisbane artist currently based in Melbourne. She completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts / Visual Arts at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, 2010. She has been awarded numerous arts grants and exhibited both nationally and internationally.
