Dr. Catherine Clover

Artist, Researcher Melbourne, Australia

Born and brought up in London, UK where I completed my undergrad studies in Fine Art (Wimbledon School of Art, East London University), I moved to Australia in the 1990s through an arts residency with Gertrude Contemporary in Melbourne. My multidisciplinary practice explores communication through voice and language and the interplay between hearing and listening – the vocal, the spoken – and seeing and reading – the visual, the written. Using collaboration and performance with field recording, digital imaging and the spoken/written word I am currently exploring an expanded approach to language within species and across species and oriented to the sharing of the urban environment. I teach at Swinburne University Melbourne (MA Writing, BA Media/Communications) and hold a practice led PhD (Fine Art) through RMIT University, Melbourne.
