Heike Qualitz is a practicing artist and community worker based in Canberra. She was raised in Berlin and discovered Australia whilst travelling many moons ago. The continent’s spaciousness and ancient history provide ongoing fascination and inform her practice and research.
In 2009 Qualitz graduated from the Australian National University School of Art Sculpture Workshop in Canberra. During her studies she was involved with the ANU School of Art Environment Studio and more recently has been Field coordinator of the Field Studies Program.
Qualitz is passionate about community and the importance of sharing and exploring ideas through collaborative living and working.
Her sculptural experiments with objects and the body in space explore different modes of perception, using sound as material and engaging photography and video as a process and artistic output.
