A freestanding neon light inspired by gaseous planets, rings, snakes and plaits, cords, concrete and maybe a little bit of David Bowie...

Josee Vesely-Manning is a visual artist who often works with sculptural installation and more recently lighting and object design. In her practice she explores themes of environmental degradation and material obsolescence within an invented and idiosyncratic universe of magic and anarchy. Enlivened matter and effluvia are also ongoing investigations. Her performance background and growing up within a travelling circus family is a recurring motif. She has worked for several years predominantly in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, and has delivered projects and exhibitions for a diverse range of galleries, festivals and funding bodies including The Australia Council, Arts Victoria, The City of Port Philip Cultural Development Fund, The City of Melbourne, Arts House/The Meat Market, Federation Square, Carriageworks, Underbelly Arts Festival and LAB and Artist Led Spaces. She has also worked as an arts facilitator, curator and writer with numerous local community groups as well as commissions and collaborations with international artists and designers. She has recently completed a Master of Fine Arts at Sydney College of the Arts, The University of Sydney under the thesis title Magic Nihilism.
