Fayen d'Evie is an artist based in Dja Dja Wurring country, rural Victoria, Australia. Her projects are often conversational and collaborative, and resist spectatorship by activating diverse audiences in embodied readings of artworks. Fayen advocates the radical potential for blindness, arguing that blindness offers critical positions and methods attuned to sensory translations, ephemerality, the tangible and intangible, precariousness, concealment, the obscured and the invisible. Fayen is the founder of 3-ply, which investigates artist-led publishing as an experimental site for the creation, dispersal, translation, and archiving of texts.  Past exhibitions include:  Eavesdropping, Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne, 2018; When the Other Meets the Other Other, Cultural Centre, Belgrade, 2017; From One Body to Another, Casula Powerhouse, Sydney, 2017; Human Commonalities, V.A.C. and the State Museum of Vadim Sidur, Moscow, 2016; TarraWarra Biennial: Endless Circulation, Healesville, 2016; The Gravity, the Levity, KADIST, San Francisco 2016; 3rd Ural Industrial Biennial, Yekaterinburg, 2015; Just as Money is the Paper, the Gallery is the Room, Osage Gallery, Shanghai, 2015. Fayen is a candidate for a PhD in Curatorial Practice at Monash University. She holds a BFA in Painting from the University of Melbourne, a PhD in Environmental Studies from the Australian National University, and a BSc (Hons) in Physics from the University of Canterbury, Aotearoa/New Zealand.
