Steven Rhall (Taungurung) was the supporting artist with Domenico de Clario for the Mildura Palimpsest Biennale #10 project Walking Slowly Downhill. Steven collaborated, documented, uploaded a daily live webcast and piloted the support vehicle for the duration of the Walking Slowly Downhill journey.
Steven Rhall lives and works in Melbourne. Rhall holds a Bachelor of Arts (Photography), Bachelor of Media and Communication (Honours) and is currently completing a Master of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts.
Rhall’s interdisciplinary practice responds to the cultural landscape, creating networks of interconnected signs and symbols. Reflecting upon both medium specificity, the meaning of objects and cultural semiotics, Rhall merges post-colonial and interpersonal narratives. Known for his photographic practice, Rhall incorporates 2D media within the 3D space – his installations often include video, found objects and materials of advertising.
In 2013, Rhall’s series Kulin Project was exhibited at the Centre for Contemporary Photography and later that year as part of ‘Melbourne Now’ at the National Gallery of Victoria. Rhall’s 2015 exhibitions include the touring group show ‘Octoroon’ at Latrobe University Museum of Art and solo exhibition, We Specializes in Authentic Aboriginal Art at Footscray Community Arts Centre. Rhall’s work is held in various collections including the National Gallery of Victoria, the City of Melbourne and Horsham Regional Art Gallery.
