Michelle Day is a sculptor and installation artist based in Canberra, Australia primarily creating work from silicone, fabric, found

objects, steel, glass and light. She is motivated by an intense interest in ‘the organic’ and medical technologies and is fascinated by

the mechanical workings of the body, plants and the world of microorganisms. Michelle aims to create works that are simultaneously

attractive and unsettling and that respond to the boundaries and tensions between new technologies and the natural world. Her work

ranges from small delicate sculptures to medium-scale installations.


Michelle graduated from the School of Art, Australian National University in 2009 and has exhibited in Australia: Canberra, Melbourne,

Ballarat and Sydney, and internationally in: Chiang Mai, Thailand; Nagoya, Japan and Dunedin, New Zealand.

From 2015 – 2017, Michelle resided in Thailand and completed a Master of Fine Arts at Chiang Mai University Faculty of Fine Art. She

is the recipient of several prestigious grants from Australia Council for the Arts, artsACT, Freedman Foundation, Sidney Myer Fund and

The Australian Embassy, Thailand.


Michelle works from her studio in Pialligo, Canberra, Australia.
