Fiona McMonagle | Studio | Art Guide Australia

Art Guide Australia takes us inside the Melbourne studio of Fiona McMonagle as she prepares an animation for the Basil Sellers Art Prize.

“The animation is based on female boxers. It came about because I’ve been doing boxercise classes. I thought it would be an interesting subject – a lot of people don’t understand why a woman would want to get in the ring and box. I haven’t really gotten in the ring yet – it’s been more about the training – so when I see women who are brave enough, it’s inspiring. I’m interested in what kind of person has that kind of courage.” – Fiona McMonagle, Art Guide Australia

After being selected one of sixteen finalists, the shortlisted artists are then given eight months to complete a work centered on the theme of sport. The acquisitive prize will award $100,000 to the winner on 25 July 2014.
