Q&A with Artist - Andrea Rassell: Trafficking | Transmission | Translation

Friday 29 July, 1pm-2pm


Andrea Rassell is a media artist and interdisciplinary researcher in science art who will be researching new nano artwork while in residence at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery's Harold Schenberg Study Centre. Join her in a Question and Answer session as she discusses her progress.

Working in nanoart — artforms that engage with nanoscience and nanotechnology — she creates experimental films and moving image installations that explore technological mediation and the multisensory perception of the sub-molecular realm. Her work has been shown at the New York Imagine Science Festival, Oaxaca FilmFest in Mexico, the New Zealand International Film Festival, White Night in Australia and Sónar+D in Spain. She has been recognised by awards and grants from the Australian Government, the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT), the Council of the Humanities and Social Sciences (Australia), St Kilda Film Festival, and Oaxaca FilmFest. Andrea was the 2019 recipient of the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT) Synapse residency, where she developed moving image works that explore the social and cultural implications of diagnostic systems in collaboration with the Ian Potter NanoBioSensing Facility. In 2020 Andrea was an artist-in-residence with Taller 30 (San Miguel de Allende), and Laboratorio Arte AC, Tecnológico de Monterrey, and a member of the ANAT Ideate programme (Australia). She is currently a Forrest Prospect Fellow at SymbioticA, an artistic laboratory dedicated to the research, learning, critique and hands-on engagement with the life sciences at University of Western Australia.
