DANE MITCHELL

Dane Mitchell’s practice is concerned with manifesting the physical properties of the incorporeal. Through the use of scent, spells and shamans, his work channels invisible forces into concrete forms, coupling spiritual tendencies with minimalism and conceptualism. 

Mitchell lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand. He will represent New Zealand in the forthcoming 58th Venice Biennale, and he has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Japan (2017);  Sydenham55, Sydney, Australia (2014); Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand (2012); and Govett Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth, New Zealand (2011). His work has been included in exhibitions worldwide such as The future is already here - it's just not evenly distributed, Royal Botanic Gardens and Gallery of New South Wales, Biennale of Sydney, Australia (2016); Trigger Points, Palitz Gallery, Syracuse University Lubin House, New York (2016); 1st TRIO Biennial, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2015); Market Forces, Osage Art Foundation, Hong Kong, China (2013); Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool, UK (2012); Gwangju Biennale, Gwangju, South Korea (2012); and Busan Biennale, Busan, South Korea (2010).
