FAYEN d’EVIE is an artist and writer whose practice engages with installation, performance, conversation, publishing and writing.

Her work is increasingly interested in shifting the focus of exhibition making from prioritising the sense of sight, to more embodied encounters. Often collaborative, her work operates in the space of shared production and active, participative audience reception. Fayen’s work includes performative scores for tactile encounters with artworks, responsive installations that treat artworks as choreographic objects, and archiving of ephemeral and/or neglected practices.
Recent exhibitions include ee//hm, Kadist Art Foundation, San Francisco, 2016; Beyond Exhausted, Physics Room, Christchurch, 2016; […] {…} […] handovers + translations, Gertrude Glasshouse, Melbourne 2016; Human Commonalities, V.A.C. and the State Museum of Vadim Sidur, Moscow, 2016; and Endless Circulation – TarraWarra Biennial, Healesville, 2016.
Fayen is the founder of 3-ply, an independent publishing initiative that focuses on publication, writing, editing and translation as an extension of art practice.
