Andrew Burrell (Australia)

Andrew Burrell is a hybrid media artist and writer working across the disciplines of sculpture, installation, sound and the written word. He is currently based in Sydney and exhibits regularly both locally and internationally. He works with interactive audio/visual sculpture and installation, with much of his practice revolving around the collection and writing of narrative “fictions.”

He is currently exploring themes of the self, memory and narrative. He plays with these narratives, both personal and fictitious, and creates a space for the viewer’s own memories and narratives to lie along side of his own. His practice ranges from completely immersive sound and text environments, where viewers can explore narrative in time by manoeuvring themselves through space, to intimate ‘stand-alone’ objects reminiscent of reliquaries and sculptural audio objects. Recently has practice has involved the exploration of audio in real-time 3d environments.

He holds a PhD awarded by the Sydney University. Documentation of his work can be viewed at

“I can’t see any way around it. Nothing has ever happened. There have been no events – there never will be any. It is true (and I confess that this complicates matters) that every moment has the moments that lead up to it (perhaps with some anticipation) as it also has those moments that occur as a result of it. But for the life of me I cannot pinpoint any one of these moments ever actually having occurred… Maybe I am missing something. “
