Event Details

Gabriella Hirst (she/her) is an artist and writer. She was born and grew up on Cammeraygal land and is currently living in Berlin. She works primarily with moving image, sculpture, performance, and with the garden as a site of critique and care. Gabriella’s practice explores the politics of capture. She is interested in how art and archival structures attempt to keep dynamic places, objects, people and stories in a state of stasis. She is inspired by eco-feminism, plant stories, cinema history, and science fiction.

Gabriella was an undergraduate student at the College of Fine Arts and the National Art School, Australia, between 2008-2012. She received an MFA at the Slade School, London in 2013, as recipient of the John Crampton Scholarship. She is the recipient of the 2020 ACMI/Ian Potter Moving Image Commission, the Marten Bequest Scholarship, and the Sidney Power Institute Prize. Gabriella’s recent projects have been exhibited and commissioned by the Kunsthalle Osnabrück (DE), CARA (USA), Focal Point Gallery (UK), The Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Australian Center for the Moving Image (AU).

She is currently an associate lecturer in Media Studies with the Royal College of Art, School of Architecture, London.
