Nicholas Folland is an installation artist born in 1967, who lives and works in Adelaide. He is currently the Head of Contemporary Studies and Sculpture at the Adelaide Central School of Art.
In 2005, Folland completed a Master of Visual Arts at the University of Sydney, following a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the University of South Australia, (1999) when he was awarded the Samstag International Visual Art Scholarship.
At the centre of Folland’s practice is a reinterpretation of the ordinary and banal. By utilising common domestic materials, re-purposed furniture, natural fibres, taxidermy and ice, Folland manifests fables of historical reference, exposing cultural differences and tapping into our individual and accumulated sense of identity.
