Lane Cormick makes work through endurance-based performance or procedure, with a commitment to impractical or unreasonable projects that test him physically and mentally, without any assurance of a predictable outcome. At the heart of Cormick’s work is an investigation of risk and technique. The artist throws himself fearlessly into challenges where anything could go wrong at any moment, exposing the limits of his skills and the enormity of his attempts.
Melbourne-based artist Lane Cormick has previously exhibited at Tristian Koenig, Neon Parc, CCP, RMIT Project Space, Gertrude Contemporary and the Australian Centre of Contemporary Art in Melbourne; and at Chalk Horse Gallery, Sydney; UKS Gallery, Oslo; Art Forum Berlin; Artspace, Sydney. He has also exhibited at various artist-run initiatives such as Hell, Platform, Bus, Penthouse and Pavement, Kings, TCB and First Floor. Cormick has been the recipient of an Australia Council residency in Los Angeles and a Gertrude Contemporary residency in Melbourne. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Drawing) from the Victorian College of the Arts in 1999.
