Tess Mehonoshen is an emerging visual artist, currently based in Melbourne. In 2015 she graduated from Queensland College of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Art, Honours (Class I).
Mehonoshen's current practice is concerned with generating a sense of defiance, focusing on adjusting to loss of place, and a subsequent untethered sense of belonging. Working primarily in sculpture and installation on site specific responses, Mehonoshen's works aim to intrude within spaces, subtly disrupting the functionality of domestic sites. Her materials are strained and forced into a continual state of decay, leaving behind a trail of erosive, and corporally corrosive dust. These processes of deterioration are further exploited in her time-lapse, landscape-based installations, where external weathering serves to encourage the ephemerality of the works.
