Selena de Carvalho

Selena de Carvalho is an emerging cross-disciplinary artist based in Tasmania. Her practice responds to notions of personal ecology and human interaction with the environment, often relating to the perceived consumption of wilderness and lived experiences of wildness. She focuses on the core paradox of how we (humanity) yearn for the untamed, and yet in our desire to experience the wild, consciously or unconsciously seek to control it.  Technology and creativity are used as a means to raise questions as opposed to providing answers. She extends her solo practice into this ongoing conceptual inquiry often, by working in a co- devised, shared pedagogical process with community.
 
Most recently she was awarded the prestigious Shenberg Art Fellowship for her work Ecological Haunts (ii)  as part of Hatched at PICA (Perth Institute for Contemporary Art) and just returned from KOCHI AIR residency in India, supported through the Alcorso Grant.
