Gabrielle de Vietri is an artist who works across many media including video, performance, sculpture, text, events and images. Her work often explores non-verbal and verbal communication, especially the ways in which codes of language are used, interpreted and manipulated to create or distort meaning.
Gabrielle completed a Master of Fine Arts at Monash University in 2013, and a BFA (Honours) at VCA. Among other grants and awards, Gabrielle undertook the Australia Council residency at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin in 2011/12. In collaboration with artist-curator Will Foster, de Vietri runs A Centre for Everything, a creative and pedagogical programme of events in Collingwood, Australia.
