Bani Abidi: ‘What you see in my films is what I know’ Ocula Conversation Bani Abidi: ‘What you see in my films is what I know’

A group of voices accompanies me in the exhibition. They are singing words I cannot comprehend, yet the warm tunes are familiar: folk songs, love songs, songs of longing. There are letters, too.

Fiona Abicare

b. 1972, Australia

Fiona Abicare was born in Melbourne, where she continues to live and work. She graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Sculpture) in 1994, and in 1999 completed an honours degree in sculpture and in 2006 a Master of Arts in Interior Design at RMIT University, Melbourne.

Working across sculpture, fashion, installation and photography, Abicare questions and seeks to transform traditional distinctions between art and design. While her previous projects were defined by by an interest in the ways sculpture is presented and staged within the gallery context, her recent works consider other public and private settings and how these spaces are shaped and activated by material qualities and associated objects. Increasingly, Abicare has sought collaborative contexts to develop the complex associations that exist between sites of display and their relationship to codes of routine behaviour. Through rigorously selected materials and methodologies, Abicare presents her sculptural practice as a sequence of designed, performed and documented outcomes.
