Nelmarie du Preez (b. 1985, South Africa) is a South African artist, working in the fields of performance, photography and computational arts. Her practice revolves around issues of socio-political identity stemming from the self-other relation. She engages with various notions of otherness and other-ing and the limited representations thereof. Her work employs loops and repetitive tropes.
She has exhibited internationally in London, New York and Berlin as well as major cities in South Africa. In 2012 she completed her Advanced Diploma in Visual Arts with highest distinction. Du Preez holds a BA in Audiovisual Multimedia as well as BA in Theology and Psychology.
Currently, she forms part of the collective FLAT 34 and is associate curator for The Tin Shed gallery and is completing her final year on the MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London, where she also completed her MA in Computational Arts.
