She is currently a lecturer in the Art History and Theory program at Monash Art, Design and Architecture. Her practice, research, and teaching centre on screen cultures, with a focus on feminism, performance practice and aesthetic theory. She has taught across the theory program and into studio classes in the undergraduate and higher degree program at MADA. Tamsin’s visual practice incorporates a range of media, including installation, painting, photography and film. Recent solo exhibitions include Relax at Techno Park Studios, Covers at Bus Projects, and Designs at The Other Side. These three exhibitions drew links between art historical incidents in order to uncover gaps in the history of representation.

Tamsin has participated in a number of residencies including an international residency with The Icelandic Association of Visual Artists (SIM) in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Covers
2015

Installation view, Bus Projects.

This work consisted of a large, anamorphic wall drawing stretched across two adjacent walls of Bus Projects. Three smaller works were placed over this image. The wall drawing has its origin in Dürer’s etching of his ‘drawing machine’.

Installation view, Bus Projects.

A detail showing the work ‘original frottage’. ‘Original frottage’ is one of two near-identical works; the other is exhibited at designs at The Other Side. The drawing was made using grey-lead pencil and frottage against a stucco wall. The specific wall used was the interior corridor of a psychoanalyst’s office above the former gallery, Light Projects. On the reverse of the image is a print (to scale) of Courbet’s L'Origine du monde.
