Haines & Hinterding
David Haines (b. 1966) and Joyce Hinterding (b. 1958) have worked collaboratively and independently for over twenty years to investigate the unseen forces that accompany our existence. Their multi-disciplinary practice employs antennae, scents, photographs, drawings, and actions, which illuminate otherwise invisible events. Haines & Hinterding's initial scientific enquiries are adapted into sophisticated, poetic provocations, which unsettle the privileging of vision or 'ocularcentrism'.
Haines and Hinterding live and work in the Blue Mountains outside of Sydney. They have both held positions as lecturers at Sydney College of the Arts, Sydney. Their work has been exhibited extensively in Australia and internationally in many major contemporary and experimental art spaces including Tate Liverpool; La Panacée, Montpellier; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; Artspace, Sydney; Artspace, Auckland; Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane; and The Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia. They have also exhibited in biennials in Adelaide, Istanbul, Kuandu, Sydney, Sao Paulo, and Tarrawarra, and been shortlisted to represent Australia at the Venice Biennale on two occasions. Haines and Hinterding will be exhibiting in the forthcoming 2022 Sydney Biennale.
