Aleks Danko is a visual artist whose career spans forty years. He is a multidisciplinary artist who works in sculpture, drawing, installation and performance art. His is a spatial art practice that situates itself between the white cube of the gallery and nominated places of site-specificity. The work is often underpinned by text-based strategies that employ generous doses of humour, irony and the absurd. Some recent exhibitions and projects: POINTLESS (more or less), 2013, Milani Gallery, Brisbane; DILLY-DALLY/SO-SO/SHIPPY-SHOPPY?/HO-HO/HANKY-PANKY/BYE-BYE …shopping for and with the un-dead, 2011, Hong Kong Art Fair; VOLUME ONE: MCA COLLECTION 2012, MCA Australia, Sydney; The Beauty of Distance: Songs of Survival in a Precarious Age, 2010, 17th Biennale of Sydney, and a list of positive things for later when things may not be so positive, (readings and performances), a collaboration with Jude Walton, Adelaide Botanical Gardens, as part of DUETTO, 2010, through the Australian Experimental Art Foundation, Adelaide.
