Antonia Sellbach
Forms of Life
1 April - 2 May 2015


Antonia Sellbach is a Melbourne-based artist. Her work explores abstraction in relation to thought, language and serial decision-making. Often modular in nature, Sellbach’s work creates partitions and parts, sets and versions, work made to be configured and reconfigured.

Antonia Sellbach has held solo exhibitions at Sawtooth ARI, C3 Contemporary Art Space and Bus Projects and participated in group exhibitions at the NGV, Sutton Project Space, Counihan Gallery, Trocadero, Kings ARI, Platform, RMIT Gallery and Langford 120. This will be her first solo commercial exhibition.

Sellbach is currently completing a practice-led PhD exploring the connections between Wittgenstein’s concept of Language Games and Abstraction; she has a MA (Research) Fine Art, BA Fine Art (1st Class Hons) and Dip Visual Art from RMIT. Sellbach is also a musician with Melbourne bands Love of Diagrams and Beaches and a founding member of LISTEN, a collective that seeks to maintain visibility for women in the Australian music underground.
