Meet Vicky Browne
Based in the Blue Mountains, Vicky Browne is an installation artist who utilises everyday objects such as walkmans, iPods, clothing and furniture to comment on Western systems of consumption and production. Vicky often manipulates the familiar using traditional craft methods (such as knitting or weaving), and she regularly employs found or produced sound. There is a strong focus on the ‘material’ that creates sound.
Vicky has been practicing art for 15 years and currently teaches at Sydney College of the Arts (University of Sydney) and UNSW Art & Design (formerly COFA). Vicky is represented by Galerie pompom in Sydney.
