Zoë Bastin is an artist and curatorliving in Narrm (Melbourne). Bastin works in-between sculpture and dance creating choreography, objects, videos, photos and performances. Exploring the materiality of bodies and objects, her practice re-imagines her body and its connection to spatial, material and social contexts. Sculpture approximates the body through material while dance re-creates experiences using the body itself. Her recent project choreographic project Volition tries to unlearn movements, through structured improvisation, inherited from dance training to find the body anew.
Currently undertaking her PhD at RMIT University Bastin researches the materiality of bodies and objects to understand ontology.Bastin has previously exhibited and performed at The Substation, Paradise Hills Gallery, Wyndham City Council, Seventh Gallery, MADA staff Gallery at Monash University, Testing Grounds, School of Art Gallery RMIT University, Tinning St Presents, c3 Gallery and BLINDSIDE Art Space.
Current projects include organising the Annual AAANZ Conference at RMIT, Body Poilitics at Bus Projects and Volition a solo exhibition at C3 Art Space.
