Deborah Kelly is a Sydney-based artist whose works have been shown around Australia, and in the Biennales of Singapore, Sydney, Thessaloniki, TarraWarra and Venice. In 2017 her first international solo exhibition, Venus Envy, was held at the Kvindemuseet in Aarhus, Denmark.
Her projects across media are concerned with lineages of representation, politics and history in public exchange, and practices of collectivity on both small and large scale.
Most recently her work has been seen in PhotoBasel, Switzerland; the Strangelove Festival in Antwerp, Belgium; PortoFemme in Portugal; in Spaced3: North by Southeast at the Art Gallery of Western Australia, in My Monster at RMIT Gallery in Melbourne (all 2018) and in 2017’s historical survey Unfinished Business: Perspectives on Art & Feminism at ACCA in Melbourne. Her animated collage works LYING WOMEN and Beastliness have been shown in galleries, museums and cinemas around the world.
Wayang Cyber (WYGCBR) is a collaborative art group based in Bandung, Indonesia, with a focus on performance and experimental art. Wayang Cyber strives to make useful works which appear in public spaces. Their work exists between traditional “wayang” (meaning shadow) combined with contemporary, lo-fi and digital art making.
The group functions as a place to collaborate with people from different disciplines and backgrounds.
