Dominic Redfern is a video artist who works at the intersection of site, screen and identity, giving critical expression to the complexity of screen-mediated experience. Over recent years his practice has become increasingly focused on the history of natural history and contemporary understandings of place. These interests are expressed with a self-conscious approach to the technology and culture of video, making it both both subject and medium for his work. Dominic is an Associate Professor in the School of Art at RMIT University in Melbourne.
Over the last couple of years Dominic has had exhibitions at home as well as in Tokyo, Stockholm and Shanghai and he has undertaken research in Orkney and La Rochelle for future projects. Over the last decade his work has also been seen at venues including the Tate Modern, Norwich Gallery and Bristol’s FACT in the UK; Te Tuhi Centre for The Arts, New Zealand; the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane; Perth International Arts Festival; Perth Institute for Contemporary Art; in the US at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of New Art, Detroit, and Art in General in New York; Sparwasser HQ, the Interface Festival and Hamburger Bahnof in Berlin; Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo; at the Bangkok Experimental Film Festival; Ian Potter Museum, Melbourne; at Alternative Space LOOP, Seoul, as well as Gallery Minami, Tokyo Wonder Site, and Remo Gallery in Japan.
