Lucina Lane

Lucina Lane interrogates existing models specific to art and language, and rearticulates them as potentialities. Disparate objects and experiences are gathered and reconciled, forging new syntactic compounds in the form of poetic provocations. Lane’s conceptual works, which manifest as text, assemblage, painting, installation, and sculpture, present a plethora of slippages between collective and subjective experience, positing as-yet-unidentified bridges between the two. Artworks and exhibitions are treated as testing sites for opposing ideas, including most significantly the genesis and interrogation of authorship.

Lucina Lane (b.1991, Melbourne. Lives and works in Melbourne) has exhibited widely since graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), The University of Melbourne, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) in 2013. Notable exhibitions include; _Primavera _at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2019); Painting Amongst Other Things, ANCA, Canberra (2018); Teach the kids to strike, with Nigel Lendon, Neon Parc, Melbourne (2018); breath is a bridge, Neon Parc, Melbourne (2017); Visitor Visitor, presented by CAVES off-site, Gippsland Centre for Art and Design (2016); _The 5th/6th Artist Facilitated Biennale _as part of the Tarrawarra Biennial – Endless Circulation, Tarrawarra Museum of Art (2016); loosen the earth, West Space Melbourne (2016); and Cold like Concrete, Australian National University, Canberra, (2016). Lane was a finalist in the 2017 biannual _Keith and Elisabeth Murdoch Travelling Fellowship _and the 2018 Redlands Art Prize
