Selena de Carvalho is a cross-disciplinary artist based in Tasmania Australia. Her practice responds to notions of personal ecology and human interaction with the environment, exploring a paradox inherent in our contemporary relationship with the natural world; how we yearn for the untamed and yet so often seek to control it. Technology and creativity are used as a means to raise questions as opposed to providing answers.
Selena is the recipient of state and national funding for individual and collaborative projects, and was the 2013 Dombrovskis Prize winner. As part of her Dombrovkis project Selena completed an internship with Magnificent Revolution, a pop up pedal powered cinema collective. She was also part of the Networked Art Forms: Tactical Magick Faerie Circuits (Notorious R & D) at Cat (Contemporary Art Tasmania) as part of Dark Mofo curated by Nancy Mauro-Flude. Selena de Carvalho's work has been exhibited extensively within Australia and has had work tour North America and Hong Kong. Selena has participated in residencies in Beijing, Tarraleah, Claremont College and most recently was the Artist in Residence at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Selena is currently Co-Chair of Constance ARI.
