Christian Capurro

Born 1968, Dampier, Western Australia. Lives and works Melbourne.

Christian Capurro’s work over the last 20 years has involved a diverse range of media, including film, drawing, photography, print, installation and a long-term collaborative project. Characterised by a process-based approach and conceptually oriented concerns, Capurro’s work is rigorous in both concept and execution, and investigates image making through acts of erasure and reproduction as well as concerns of value and exchange, time and labour.

Capurro’s key exhibitions include the 52nd Venice Biennale, Venice (2007); Slave, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2014); IS, Sammlung Lenikus, Vienna (2013); Negotiating this World: Contemporary Australian Art, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2012); Erased (Contemporary Australian Drawing), Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (an Asialink touring exhibition) (2009–11); a vacant bazaar (provisional legend), Artspace, Sydney (2010); and InVisible: Art at the Edge of Perception, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Massachusetts (2010). Capurro’s work is held in public collections throughout Australia, including the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane.
