Philip Brophy‘s practice has, for many years, encompassed a series of experimental mixed-media works in art and non-art contexts. More recently, he has consolidated his interests to produce a range of audiovisual works focusing on his key interests in pop, sex and music. These recent works have been exhibited extensively both in Australia (Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane; Gertrude Contemporary; Anna Schwartz Gallery; and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, to name a few) and internationally (MoMA, New York; Coreana Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul; and the Singapore Biennale, among others). Brophy’s first major interactive work is the quadraphonic digital animation ‘The Body Malleable’, commissioned by the Digital Media Fund, exhibited in Melbourne, Sydney, Osaka and Belgium, and now on permanent display at MONA, Hobart. In 2002, the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, published the first monograph on Brophy’s work: Hyper Material for Our Very Brain.
