ABOUT



Alice Duncan is a jack-of-all trades currently residing in Naarm/Birraranga (Melbourne). 

Alice’s practice exposes the multifaceted, ever-changing and (most importantly) constructed nature of our personal and cultural identities. Utilising photography, ready made materials and site specific installation, Alice visualises the complexities involved in collectively living on colonised land. She creates images that layer both past and present Australian histories, using a combination of past (analogue) and present (digital) photographic techniques. 

Alice completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2014. She was the winner of the aquisitive Terry Cutler Award and finalist in the Majilis Travelling Scholarship for graduate students. In 2019, Alice completed an MA in Photography at RMIT where she was awarded the Kayell Photography Prize and the Dean’s Award for Excellence. She is currently undertaking a practice-led reasearch PhD at RMIT. In 2020, Alice has been chosen as a finalist for the Sunshine Coast Art Prize, CLIP Photography Awards (Perth) and Head On Festival (Sydney).

Alice’s work has been exhibited across Australia and internationally including solo exhibitions at Bus Projects (Melbourne), Cut Thumb Gallery (Brisbane), Seventh Gallery (Melbourne) and group exhibitions at Pingyao Photography Festival (China), Perth Centre for Photography and Queensland Centre for Photography. Alice has been an artist-in-residence at AARK in Korpo, Finland and the IAM in Berlin, Germany.

I acknowledge the people of the Woi wurrung and Boon wurrung language groups of the eastern Kulin Nations as the traditional custodians of the land on which I live and work, and respectfully recognise their Elders past, present and emerging.
