Melanie Jame Wolf is an Australian-born artist who lives and works between Melbourne and Berlin.
She makes work about economies. Sometimes solo, sometimes with friends. Always exploring systems of value and exchange. Often investigating these flows as they are produced through ideas of ghosts, of gender, of pop, of myth, of morality.
This work is made under the name Savage Amusement.
Melanie Jame's expanded practice incorporates text, choreography, video, sound, and performance. She is primarily interested in ideas and questions of personae and their staging. The form of her work occurs with increasing fluidity at points where live performing bodies and video intersect.
Melanie Jame has shown work in a wide range of gallery, theatre, and film festival contexts including: Hebbel am Ufer – HAU, Berlin; Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki; ngbk, Berlin; Festival of Live Art Melbourne; VAEFF Film Festival, NYC; Arts Santa Monica, Barcelona; Schwules Museum, Berlin; & Sophiensaele, Berlin.
