Dr Bronwyn Platten


Dr. Bronwyn Platten is an artist-researcher whose practice spans the intersections between arts, healthcare and social engagement with a particular focus upon embodied experience and identity. Her approach often employs multiple strategies and practices from installation, performance, film and painting to concrete poetry, creative writing, workshops and academic lectures. Bronwyn completed a BA in Fine Art, The University of South Australia, 1984. In 2012, Bronwyn was awarded a doctorate from The University of Salford, Manchester for Mouths and Meaning - a multisensory, creative and collaborative exploration of food, eating and embodiment towards gaining greater understanding of eating disorders.

She has exhibited in numerous individual, collaborative and group exhibitions including Figuring Landscapes, an international touring exhibition which was launched at the TATE Modern, London in 2010 and Mouths and Meaning, Sarah Coggrave, Bronwyn Platten and others, The Australian Experimental Art Foundation, Adelaide, South Australia, 2013. Bronwyn has held lecturing posts in universities in Australia, the UK and Europe. Alongside her practice as an artist and academic she has worked with diverse communities to create art projects for hospitals, public environs and galleries. Between 2003-08 Bronwyn was employed as an artist and a curator for NHS Trusts in Aberdeen and Manchester.

She has received significant awards for her art practice and research from the Arts Council of Australia, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, UK as well as an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council bursary to undertake full-time doctoral research for Health and Infrastructure Research and Innovation Centre (HaCIRIC), School of the Built Environment, The University of Salford. With medical anthropologist Dr Megan Warin, in 2013 she has been awarded a fellowship from the Fay Gayle Centre for Research on Gender, The University of Adelaide to develop collaborative arts-based research exploring eating pleasures and the sensorial agency of gendered bodies in the context of eating disorders and obesity.
