Ella Condon is an artist who interacts with spaces through photography, video and sound installation. Her practice engages with physical spaces and the embedded history that remains within sites of tension. She interacts with notions of destabilising imagery and warping time through a site specific installation practice. Her current practice involves creating and distorting the photographic through visual projections reflected on to a body of water. The artists’ role in disturbing the water upon which the image is projected is akin to that of a conductor of electricity. The artist injects the image with energy, allowing light to refract, and create distortions.
Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally including as part of the New York International Fringe Festival, Centre for Contemporary Photography Melbourne, Australian Centre for Photography Sydney and a range of Sydney based galleries. Her work has been acquired by Australia Council of the Arts, and the Gold Coast City Art Gallery as part of the Josephine Ulrick & Win Schubert Photography Award.
Ella is currently undertaking research at Parsons School of Design, New York on behalf of Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney. She is the recipient of an Australian Postgraduate Award, the Fauvette Loureiro Memorial Artists Exchange Scholarship and was recently awarded an Australian Artists' Grant from the National Association for the Visual Arts. Ella has a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours Class 1) from Sydney College of Arts, University of Sydney, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Distinction) from the College of Fine Arts, University of NSW. She is currently completing a Master of Fine Art (Research) at Sydney College of the Arts.
Ella is represented by Soldiers Rd Surry Hills.
