For MOON, Sebastian Moody returns to the gallery space and two dimensional strategies for ‘thinking about looking’.

Sebastian Moody was born in Sydney, New South Wales (1979). He currently lives and works in Brisbane where he has completed a Master of Museum Studies at The University of Queensland (2009) and a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the Queensland University of Technology and (2001).
Moody is a conceptually driven artist working across a range of contexts and mediums. Best known for public text works that offer moments of contemplation in busy urban environments, his works have appeared in spaces including airports, swimming pools, personals ads, kitchen splashbacks, coffee, hang gliders and focus groups.
His projects and presentations, equal parts gravitas and levity, have appeared at the New York Art Book Fair, Semi-Permanent Sydney 2015, Brisbane International Airport, Bus Projects, Mild Manners, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Ryan Renshaw Gallery, Splendour in the Grass, Next Wave Festival, Linden Contemporary Art Space, Bundaberg Arts Centre, Queensland Art Gallery, Livid Festival, Museum of Brisbane, The Goodwill Bridge, The Queensland University of Technology Art Museum and Southbank Parklands.

“The text works of Sebastian Moody give the audience an opportunity to move beyond the limits of spectacle and mediated meaning. In so doing, these works enable audience members to acknowledge that they are active participants in a myriad of finitely renewable relationships. Ranging from the imperative to the appealing, Moody’s ‘voice’, in text and narrative, is as familiar as the inner voice that was lost with ‘true subjectivity’. Offering statements that challenge as they reassure, Moody nudges his audience into a critical awareness of self—one that, in its honesty, cannot help but acknowledge an individual point of view that is unique in its construction and, yet, essentially common in its discursive origins.” Clare Murphy 2006.
