NEW EXHIBITION - TEMPORARY TERRITORY AT BAR JOSEPHINE FOR 'ONE NIGHT IN FOOTSCRAY' FESTIVAL

ABOUT

Shae Rooke is a photographer, video and installation artist based in Melbournes West. She makes her art from the little things, finding the unexpected in the everyday. Her current artworks play off (mis)communication and offer multiple interpretations of the world around us. Shae creates intricate installations and illusiory video’s and photographs which merge natural and constructed landscapes, mess with scale and twist your perception. She is inspired by $2 shops, pop culture, long walks with her camera and reading Australian *post*colonial perspectives. Her favourite words are creepy and cute. 

12923219_974596475967829_7858340160738967947_nShae has exhibited throughout Australia, Europe and China on public art, video projections, sculptural commissions and cultural exchange projects. An avid collaborator, Shae has worked closely with artists, arts organisations, collectives, sound designers, and a balloon artist to develop innovative creative projects. Contact Shae to purchase artwork that you see on this website or to commission or collaborate on something new.
