Philipa Veitch’s interdisciplinary art practice explores the matrix of natural, social and psychic phenomena that constitute our subjective experience of modernity. Her artworks employ a range of processes and forms including film, sound, drawing and installation to investigate the psychic and material rupture that partitions our experience of the natural and the industrialised world. Veitch has curated more than a dozen exhibitions, including Dark Arts, Easy Journey to Other Planets, Petrol, and Comfort, and was co-director of Firstdraft (1996-1997) and Loose projects (2006-2007). She has undertaken a number of residencies including the Asialink Visual Arts Residency (Beijing), and videomicroscopy and scanning electron microscopy residencies at The University of Sydney and The Australian Museum. Her short films have screened nationally and internationally in events such as Experimenta (Melbourne), Impakt Festival (Utrecht), Image Forum (Tokyo), and the European Media Art Festival (Osnabruck). Selected recent exhibitions and projects include Metadata (Knulp), Worm (Marrickville Garage), Easy Listening (West Space), Look this Way (UTS Gallery), and Curating Feminism (Sydney College of the Arts Gallery).
