Gertrude Studio Artist

2023 - 2025

Arini Byng works with the affective qualities of materials, gestures and settings; undertaking exercises in image, movement and form to negotiate political scenes. 

Byng’s output traverses photography, performance, video, and painting, to create complex, intimate studies in gesture and action. Her practice draws on the phenomenology of the body as it encounters the physical world. In recent work, she has incorporated her personal family archive to navigate identity, history, memory, and lived experience.

Born in 1987 on Gadigal Country and now based in Naarm, Byng is of Black American and Anglo-Celtic descent. Recent exhibitions and performances include Some voices carry, a solo exhibition presented at CAVES for PHOTO 2022; Group Exhibition at ReadingRoom; and I felt it when you fell, performed at Bus Projects, Gertrude Glasshouse, and Ararat Gallery TAMA.
