Session Artists

Illimine is an international collective of multimedia artists, performers and academics. Illimine practices a transdisciplinary dialogue around gesture, duration, expanded poetry, and site-specific art. Its way of working is entirely non-hierarchical, with ownership of intellectual and artistic property shared between all contributors to the process of thinking / doing. This translates into durational performances integrated with multimedia installations. Illimine has performed and exhibited nationally and internationally since 2013, with exhibitions at Counihan Gallery (Melbourne); MAAM, DIF (Rome, Italy); Lucarini Contemporary, Trevi (Italy); Performance Arcade (Wellington, NZ).
