|Vicky Browne is an installation artist who utilises everyday objects such as walkmans, iPods, clothing and furniture to comment on Western systems of consumption and production. Browne often manipulates the familiar using traditional craft methods (such as knitting or weaving), and she regularly employs found or produced sound. |
Browne completed a Master of Visual Art at Sydney College of the Arts in 2010 and her work has been exhibited at Artspace, Sydney; Artspace, Auckland, New Zealand; and Dunedin Public Art Gallery, New Zealand. Recent exhibitions include Living in the Ruins of the Twentieth Century, UTS Gallery, Sydney, Sound Full: Sound in Contemporary Australian and New Zealand Art, City Gallery Wellington, New Zealand and It is what it is, Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, Windsor.
Vicky Browne also maintains a collaborative practice with musician Darren Seltmann. Together they have exhibited at MONA FOMA, Hobart, completed a residency at Artspace Sydney 2014, and exhibited the work Black Mountain at the Blue Mountain Cultural Centre.
