Faux is delighted to present a unique collection of limited edition Lightboxes by Jayne Dyer
Jayne Dyer is an Australian artist based in Lisbon, Portugal and Sydney, Australia.
My international practice is hybrid, interdisciplinary and socially engaged, and address identity and otherness, particularly in reference to what we culturally and socially valued. Projects are site-specific, collaborative, and increasingly performative.
Two key projects are planned for 2019: This Savage Garden, a series of installations conceived for Adaption & Transition, Bienal do Fotografia, Porto, Portugal, to be exhibited at Palacio de Cristal Jardim; and Art Politic, to be developed at DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) & JSA (Joint Security Area), and exhibited at Suwon Museum of Art, South Korea. These continue my focus on social and environmental states of change and crisis and insinuate a fragile interiority.
Exhibition highlights include the Triennial of Photography, Hamburg, Germany (2018); Foreigners, Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre, UK (2017); Tell me something, 2016 Colombo Art Biennale, Sri Lanka; Last Things, Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre, UK (2016) in collaboration with British artist Wayne Warren; Sharpness, Anna Pappas Gallery, Australia (2016); It’s closing time for gardens of the West, Palazzo Mora, 2015 Venice Biennale, with Wayne Warren; Ger to Ger, Mongolia National Art Gallery, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia (2013); Unbound, Macquarie University Gallery, Sydney, Australia (2013); The protest that never ends, ARTISTERIUM 5, Tbilisi, Georgia (2012); URS27, Taipei City Urban Redevelopment initiative, Taiwan; Spill, Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei, Taiwan (2011); postEDEN, Today Art Museum, Beijing, China (2010); The Recycled Library, Art Space, Mackay, Australia (2009); Spare Room, Elizabeth Bay House Museum, Sydney, Australia (2007).
In 2013 I received the inaugural Individual Artist Award from Australian Federal Government for arts achievements in Asia and in 2005 a Commonwealth of Australia public service medal for contributions to arts and education. Arts agencies including the Australia Council for the Arts, Asialink Australia, DFAT, Fubon Art Foundation, Taipei Culture Foundation, the Sovereign Art Foundation, Hong Kong and the Australian High Commission, Sri Lanka, have funded major projects and residencies.
