TINA HAVELOCK STEVENS
Tina Havelock Stevens is a Sydney based artist predominantly working across video, sound, music, experimental documentary and performance. She explores the ambiguities of human nature, using cinematic conventions and performance as a means of responding to personal histories and specific environments with audio-visual installations. Recently she had a major solo show at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (Feb-April 2020) and was featured inThe National 2019: New Australian Artat the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. She is the recipient of the prestigious 65th Blake Prize (2018) and the 55th Fisher Ghost Prize (2017). Fusing her sensibilities as a documentary-maker and musician, she creates immersive art, dwelling on loaded sites to speak of survival and fragility within environmental, urban and emotional spaces.
