Tara Gilbee was born in Australia where she currently works and lives. She has recieved a BFA in Sculpture at Victoria College of the Arts in 1996. Her work is varied and encompasses photography, installation, sound and video.

Tara Gilbee works across mediums and disciplines to explore transitional and ephemeral states. Her art work varies in relation to the space in which it is presented or the artists she works with. She has worked in collaboration with a range of practioners from video, sound and live arts practices.

Tara has created themes and propositions for artist to respond to, such as the internal space of a carved book or the liminal space between display cabinets. Some interesting sites that have been part of her work are a Hospital, railway passage, shipping container, Chinese restaurant, disused toilet block and a derelict porcelain factory in France. In her individual works she often engages an underlying psychology that has a dark beauty and entrancing phenomena. Investigating traces, drawing out illusions and the particular textures or actions that create a fascinating new viewing of what is observed.

Tara is a curatorial collaborator in the space in between artist group. She is a member of the artist group Punctum Inc and has been working with this group as a photomedia artist for 6 years.She has been awarded grants to create work and attended residencies Nationally and Internationally. She has written articles for key arts publications, lectured at Victorian Universities about her work and is collected in Public and Private collections.
