Matt Brown is an early career visual artist currently living and working in Perth. His practice involves research into analog formats of archive, intending to challenge normalised processes of the visually informative.
Today, due to a democratization of data and knowledge, historically appropriate methods of archiving and presenting information have become somewhat strange and absurd. Brown’s practice involves a process of applying these analog and absurd methods to subjects that cause them to be broken down and become poetic rather than informative and authoritative.
Brown graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art from Curtin University in 2017 and was the winner of the City of South Perth Emerging Artist Award. The artist is currently in residence at Fremantle Arts Centre (WA) and has recently exhibited solo projects at FELTspace (SA) and Cool Change Contemporary (WA).
