Facilitator Damiano Bertoli

Damiano Bertoliis a Melbourne based artist with a multi-disciplinary practice that challenges ideas of authorship, influence and the inscribed flow of art-historical time. He often brings together artworks, historical events and cultural material to examine their form and language.

Bertoli’s methodology explores the principles of assemblage and montage across sculpture, installation, photography, drawing, video and performance. Bertoli received a PhD in Fine Art from Monash University in 2014, and is currently a lecturer at Monash University and the Victorian College of the Arts, The University of Melbourne. His work is the subject of a new monograph, Damiano Bertoli – Continuous Moment, published by Surpllus.

Facilitator Nick Selenitsch

Nick Selenitsch’s practice promotes the artistic and social importance of “not-knowing”. Through a variety of media – installation, drawing, sculpture and public artworks – his works create an elemental language out of familiar forms where the impulse to achieve the goal of singular understanding is both continuously acknowledged and endlessly eschewed. Most recently, he has achieved this by incorporating the aesthetics and motifs of games, sports and civic markings to make artworks that flirt ambiguously with the rules and procedures of their source

Nick Selenitsch received a Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting (Honours) from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2003, where he has taught since 2008. Recent solo exhibitions include The Nature of Things, Sutton Gallery, 2016; Kangaroo Court, Latrobe Regional Gallery, Morwell, 2015; Nick Selenitsch – Play, Shepparton Art Museum, Shepparton, 2014. Recent group exhibitions include Let’s Play: The art of our time, Bunjil Place Gallery, Melbourne, 2017, Design & Play, RMIT Design Hub, Melbourne, 2016; TarraWarra Biennial 2016: Endless Circulation, TarraWarra Museum of Art, Healesville, 2016; Pattern, Glen Eira City Council Gallery, 2014; The Gathering II: A survey exhibition of Australian sculpture, Wangaratta Art Gallery, Wangaratta, 2014; and Melbourne Now, National Gallery of Victoria, 2013.
