Emile Zile is an artist, filmmaker and performer.
Emile Zile’s multifaceted practice examines the effects of the mediation of experience through communications technology.
Building on a background of live and single-channel video, his work utilises site-specific performance, portraiture and filmmaking to capture the traces of humanity inscribed on the remnants of a digital culture.
Emile received a BFA degree from RMIT Media Arts Melbourne before relocating to Amsterdam in 2007 to commence a MFA degree at the Sandberg Institute. In 2012 he began a two year studio residency at the Rjksakademie van beldeende kunsten, Amsterdam. Recent exhibitions, screenings and performances include Sydney Contemporary, Mes56 Jogjakarta, MCA Sydney, IMA Brisbane, National Gallery of Victoria Australia.
