Room for Contemplation

about Selena de Carvalho

Selena de Carvalho is an inter-disciplinary artist based in Longley Village, 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, focusing on the core paradox of how we as humanity yearn for the untamed, and yet in our desire to experience the wild, consciously or unconsciously seek to control it.

This paradox operates as a framework for deeper inquiry within Selena’s practice. Technology and creativity are used as a means to raise questions as opposed to providing answers.

Selena is the 2016 recipient of the prestigious Shenberg Art Fellowship for her work Ecological Huants (ii). The curatorial board describe the work as “experiential in the best possible sense, with the ability to draw viewers into its poetic sense of mystery and magic.

Both subtle and sophisticated, the work allows for different levels of engagement, moments of solitude and room for contemplation”.
