Gender, space, and forensic biography are the three themes that British-born, Australian artist Deej Fabyc has crisscrossed and crafted together in her performative installations over her 15-year career. She aims to interrogate the viewer with a range of work that is often demanding, aggressively thought-provoking, and sometimes shocking in its raw content.
Fabyc has performed and exhibited her work in 15 solo exhibitions in galleries and public spaces across Australia, including the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne (1997). She has also participated in numerous group shows in Australia, Europe, and the U.S., at institutions including Whitechapel Gallery, London (2005), the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid (2003), and El Museo del Barrio in New York (2004). She is a Senior Lecturer of Video Installation and Performance at Newport School of Art, Media and Design at University of Wales, Newport. Having established herself as an artist in Australia, Fabyc returned to London in 2001, where she now resides and operates an artist-run space, Elastic Residence, in an 18th-century building in Whitechapel.
