Danielle Freakley is a Seychellois-Australian artist working in performance, social practice, interactive systems and sculpture. Her works distort social communication, exposing lurking historical relationships, private subtexts, and slide into an unfading pit of de-authorship.
She is a first Selection Finalist in the Arte Laguna Prize – Venice Arsenale, exhibited at Tate - Liverpool Biennial, Museum of Contemporary Art - Sydney, Performa – Performance Biennial of New York. She has been credited "performance inspiration" in film co-produced by Alex Reynolds, Alma Söderberg in “The Singing Hand” with Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Freakley has a number of art awards, grants, residencies and exhibited in various other international biennials, triennials, national galleries, state galleries, contemporary art spaces, kitchen floors, snake temples, theme parks, cars, clothes, bins, beaches, mouths, trainstation toilets and graves.
Freakley is currently represented by Moore Contemporary in Western Australia.
