Kieren Seymour

 

ARTIST CV

Biography:

Kieren Seymour (born London, UK) is an artist based in Melbourne, Australia and works across multiple mediums including video, digital painting and photography. Fragments of politics, economics and personal experiences shape the predominantly image based studio practice. Using absurdity and humour as a narrative device in his work, Pip Wallis states in her 2013 essay, Hi, here I am, that must be enough, "The conceptual strategies of Seymour's video (artworks) are comically encumbered with humanism".

Seymour's work has been exhibited in Australia, Italy, New Zealand, Switzerland and UK. He has participated in notable group exhibitions at ACMI (Melbourne), NGV (Melbourne), MCA (Sydney). He has also shown at Neon Parc, Utopian Slumps, Sutton Projects, TCB Inc, Alaska (Sydney), RM (Auckland), Snakepit, (Auckland), Flake, Thirty Twenty Seven (Sydney), Blindside, Bus Projects and the SACI Institute, Italy. Seymour completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at R.M.I.T. in 2015, with an exchange studies program at Zurcher Hochshule De Kunste (Zhdk), Zurich 2010. His work is held in collections in Australia, Hong Kong, London and UK.
