Narrm/Melbourne artist Dans Bain works across multiple intersecting mediums with a strong focus on social justice, inclusion and personal narratives. Bain’s work draws you in and makes you a part of her creations, leaving echoes in your consciousness long after you’ve carried on with life.
Ensuring her practice is collaborative brings depth and texture to the stories that emerge, as well as making the work interactive and accessible for a wide range of audiences.
Inviting the viewer to contemplate their experiences and part in community, Bain recently exhibited her sculpture The Lost Petition (a 30 metre long list depicting women and children who have lost their lives to male violence from 2008 until day of creation in 2021) as part of the March 4 Justice rally, and at Burston Reserve in Melbourne on International Women’s Day 2021.
