About the speaker

Chris Fox is a Sydney based artist and architect. His work interrogates the conceptual and material boundaries between art and architecture, altering sites through installation, object and drawing.

Each experience of Fox’s work is relative to the technical and conceptual grammar of architecture and construction. The exploratory processes undertaken in the practice allow for a fluidity between design and artistic thinking, producing unexpected processes of spatial and material manipulation.

Fox’s work navigates the complex constraints of the public domain with poetic sensibility, recalibrating of our perception of place through material and architectural intervention. Extensive experience in utilising numerous materials means that Fox has a wealth of construction, material and artistic knowledge to extend the territory of architecture, installation and sculpture. Sculptural works, playfully mimic, distort and disrupt their environment.

Fox holds degrees in both fine arts and architecture, has been the recipient of many awards, grants and residencies such as the 2018 National Trust Heritage Award for the Most Outstanding Project of the Year.

Fox is also a Senior Lecturer in Art Processes and Architecture at the University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning.

He has exhibited in numerous solo, group and collaborative exhibitions in Australia, the USA and Europe with an established sculptural practice - Studio Chris Fox, developing large scale public and private commissioned artworks, including a recent project Interloop (2017), for Transport for NSW at Wynyard Station.
