Scott Eady (1972) is a senior lecturer in sculpture at the Dunedin School of Art at Otago Polytechnic. He was awarded the prestigious Frances Hodgkins Fellowship at the University of Otago in 2002 and the Wallace Award Development prize in 2003. Scott holds a Master of Fine Arts from Elam School of Fine Arts. Eady’s work is held in major collections such as Museum of Artetage Modern Art Vladivostok, Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Dunedin Public Art Gallery, The Hocken Collection Uare Taoka o Hākena and The Chartwell Trust. He has exhibited artwork extensively both nationally and internationally, including at the Gwangju Biennale in 2012 and Venice Biennial in 2013. Scott has, for the last decade, been making large-scale sculptural works with sardonic wit. He is concerned with the making of disruptive and troublesome sculpture that interrogates and confounds expectations of the medium.
