Event Description

Venice Biennale 2019
58th International Art Exhibition

Dane Mitchell has been selected as New Zealand’s representative for the 58th Venice Biennale, with curators Dr. Zara Stanhope and Chris Sharp. He will present an ambitious new work that will speak to his investigations into the visible and the invisible. The sculptural project – which will be simultaneously present whilst hiding in plain sight – will give voice to invisible realms and phenomena that will be transmitted throughout the city of Venice.

New Zealand Arts Council Chair, Michael Moynahan, says, “Dane’s response to ‘space’ will push the boundaries of what’s expected of an exhibition at the Biennale Arte – continuing New Zealand’s legacy of being an innovative country with a great diversity of arts practice.”

Mitchell will present a major solo exhibition at the Mori Art Museum, opening on November 18, 2017. Following research encompassing traditional Japanese incense to the latest perfume technologies, Mitchell will present works that explore the poetic links between the eye as a portal to visual experience and the nose to invisible realms. The word ‘iris’ plays a central role in the exhibition through its myriad meanings as a part of the eye, a flower, an optical device in a camera and the Greek goddess of rainbows.

The exhibition is presented in conjunction with the museum’s ongoing MAM project series – a series of experimental projects produced by the museum in collaboration with artists from around the world.

Dane Mitchell lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand. He has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Sydenham55, Sydney, Australia (2014); Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand (2012); and Govett Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth, New Zealand (2011). His work has been included in exhibitions worldwide such as The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed, Royal Botanic Gardens and Gallery of New South Wales, Biennale of Sydney, Australia (2016); Trigger Points, Palitz Gallery, Syracuse University Lubin House, New York (2016); 1st TRIO Biennial, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2015); Market Forces, Osage Art Foundation, Hong Kong, China (2013); Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool, UK (2012); Gwangju Biennale, Gwangju, South Korea (2012); and Busan Biennale, Busan, South Korea (2010).
