Corinna Berndt


Corinna Berndt is a visual artist who lives and works in Naarm / Melbourne, Australia. Her practice incorporates digital media, video installation and collage. Influenced by her background in sculpture and spatial practice, her work addresses concepts of embodiment, materiality and disembodiment, when navigating the digital realm. Through experimenting with glitched media, poetics and fabulations, her work explores the various personal and often mythologised relationships that appear to continuously resurface between physical matter and seemingly intangible, digitalised information.

During the residency at Arts Itoya, Corinna will work on a shared project with her partner, Mark Friedlander. She will also consider the idea of memory containers; how objects and materials can hold different kinds of information in both the digital as well as material realm. In her past work she has utilised various methods of digital re-materialisation to produce metaphorical memory containers, including 3D printing, data weaving, and ceramic coding.

She considers the idea of the data container as a possible metaphor for rethinking relationships to digital technology.

Corinna received her Batchelor of Fine Art from Elam School of Fine Arts, Auckland, New Zealand, and graduated with a Master of Fine Art from the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne, Australia. She is currently completing a PhD at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne.
