The Hidden Bones of an Ordinary Life

‘I had a flash back of something that never existed’ – Louise Bourgeois

Selena de Carvalho uses personal archives, collected artefacts and ‘remembered’ experiences as a catalyst to develop works on paper and moving image sculptures that respond to place and the self-constructed impression of place and experience.
Assemblage containing loops of footage expose constructed and documented experiences of sublime, sinister and repetitive aspects of life, re-framing memory, wavering between nostalgia and how we yearn for the past, yet so often wish to alter it.

Selena de Carvalho is a cross-disciplinary artist and designer based in Tasmania. Her arts practice responds to notions of personal ecology and human interaction with the environment. Technology and creativity are used as a means to raise questions as opposed to providing answers.
Her work has won numerous state and national awards, and has been exhibited nationally in public and private galleries.

This project was made possible by the Australian Government’s regional arts program, the Regional Arts Fund, which gives all Australians, wherever they live, better access to opportunities to practice and experience the arts.
