‘Chelle Macnaughtan’s universe of work, located at the productive boundary of architecture, is characterised by indeterminacy, intertextuality, iterability and sound. Her reconfigurable aluminium constructions, notations, etchings, scores and realisations, pavement photographs, and cartographies that become architectural details augmented through listening, continue the legacy of John Cage’s experiments in indeterminacy, and bring these procedures into the arena of architectural thinking and doing.’

(Hélène Frichot, extract catalog essay, 2009)

Chelle Macnaughtan studied music at the Elder Conservatorium of Music in Adelaide Australia, before completing degrees in interior design at the University of South Australia, and architecture at the University of Melbourne. She is currently submitting her PhD in Architecture by Project for examination at RMIT University in Melbourne. Chelle is the recipient of numerous awards and scholarships, including the Baillieu Research Scholarship and an Australian Postgraduate Award, and in 2005 she became the inaugural Australian Institute of Architects Lysaght Research Scholar. Chelle has participated extensively in local and international solo exhibitions, conferences, presentations and collaborations, including with Compagnie Philippe Genty, the Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Queen’s University Sonic Arts Research Centre in Belfast and the Merce Cunningham Dance Foundation in New York.
