Biography

Ann Shelton (MFA, The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada) was born in Timaru, New Zealand. Shelton’s internationally recognised large‑scale, hyper-real photographic works operate at the nexus of conceptual and documentary modes, investigating the social, political and historical contexts that inform readings of the landscape and its contents. Shelton is recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading photographic artists and is the paramount winner of two major New Zealand Contemporary Art Awards (2006 and 2010). Shelton’s work has been exhibited exstensively in New Zealand over the last 25 years with showings in every major New Zealand institution.

Shelton’s work continues to be exhibitied widely internationally and nominated for international awards (recent nominations include the Asia Pacific Breweries Foundation Signature Art Prize 2014 and Prix Pictet 2012). Her ongoing body of work in a forest has been shown in London, Berlin, Melbourne, Sydney, Spain, Wellington and Auckland. In 2010 she co-edited the publication Sightseeing: an exhibition and a publication of postcards that explore the representation of place in contemporary German and New Zealand photography – this group show includes Shelton’s work among the eight German and eight New Zealand artists featured. In 2009 she exhibited the series Public Places in Images Recalled (Bilder auf Abruf), Germany’s largest photographic biennale curated by Tobias Berger and Esther Ruelfs.

Selected group shows include Invisible Traces, Espai d’Art Contemporani de Castelló, Spain curated by Mercedes Vicente, Dark Sky at The Adam Art Gallery, Wellington curated by Geoffery Batchen and Tina Barton, a way of calling at Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts, Melbourne curated by Melissa Keys. In 2006 Shelton’s major project a library to scale was awarded the Trust Waikato Contemporary Art Award judged that year by Mercedes Vicente, and in 2006-7 this highly sucessfull project toured New Zealand and Australia.

Shelton is Associate Professor Photography at Whiti o Rehua School of Art, Massey University in Wellington, where she lectures in Fine Art and Photography, and is also Chairperson of Enjoy Public Art Gallery, Wellington’s longest running artist-run space. Shelton is represented by Trish Clark Gallery and McNamara Gallery.
