Join Michelle Newton, Deputy Director, Artspace in conversation with artist and recent recipient of the 2023 DMG/NAS Award, Armando Chant. Hear about Chant's interdisciplinary practice and his debut solo exhibition at Dominik Mersch Gallery at 3pm, Saturday 18 March 2023.

Armando Chant’s inter-disciplinary practice is founded in the act of drawing, and mark-making using analogue and digital media, and the inter-relationships between gesture, surface and space. The drawn image produced through gestural acts is used as an interpretive tool to create further iterations, thereby re-framing it within an ephemeral and transient context across surface, site and screen. His works translate the specific into the ambiguous through processes of erasure and negation, building on the tension and connection between craft and concept, image and object, and local and global in a constant oscillatory state of transformation.
