Zoe is a Brisbane based interdisciplinary artist exploring primarily a drawing practice, which also extends into painting, installation, performance, sculpture, site-specific works and video.

Tactilus Umbravi will consist of a live collaborative performance bringing together drawing, sound, installation, video projection and contemporary dance. Depictions of animal-human hybrid’s and non-human figures blur the boundaries between the real and imaginary, performer and audience. The performance and drawn works reveal an invented cosmology that feature recurring monstrous creatures that investigate the subconscious, states of transformation and which are also suggestive of a narrative that presents possibilities for other ways of being.

The dichotomy between Zoe’s performance and its ephemera are highlighted in her work, the line between the action or the drawing is the focus. The windows of the space will be drawn and painted (and lit at night) tracing the creative processes of the performance after it has finished.
