Inge Panneels is an Belgian artist and academic living in the UK, whose works explores notions of space and place, using glass as a medium for making site specific works and using mapping as creative language and often working with a team of collaborators.
She has been teaching at the National Glass Centre, University of Sunderland since 2006.
Since 2014, Inge has started a part-time AHRC funded PhD at the Northumbria University to investigate this emerging and rich field of mapping in art.
Works are often made in series; exploring a central theme through a body of work that may last a few years; such as the “Creation” pieces which explored universal creation mythology (now in Dexia collection, Brussels, Belgium) or the “Sanctuary” series which explored forms of sanctuary (“Nest”, Ebeltoft Glass Museum, Denmark). Following the Liverpool Map (2011) commission for the Museum of Liverpool (UK), the Map-i project has been emerging.
She recently organised the Reflections event at the Haining in the Scottish Borders as part of the Festival of Architecture, May 2016.
