Tina Havelock Stevens explores the ambiguities of human nature using moving image, still image, sound, improvisational performance and text. Fusing her sensibilities as a documentary-maker and musician, she creates immersive art drawing connections between personal histories and loaded sites whilst revealing atmospheres, sociological, environmental and emotional spaces.
Havelock Stevens recently had a solo show at Carriageworks for Sydney Festival 2021. In 2020 she exhibited in Afterglow Yokohama Triennale, Japan and Hope in the Dark at Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne. She also had a major solo show at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art – Thunderhead and was featured in The National 2019: New Australian Art at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
