Bianca Hester generates installations which deal with the production of site/situation in terms of process and event; writes on the practices of others; produces independent publications; is a founding member of CLUBSproject inc; has worked with the collaborative group OSW since 2003 (with Scott Mitchell, Terri Bird + Natasha Johns-Messenger); teaches sculpture at VCA; and is a member of the art-music collective Paeces (with Christopher Hill, Sean Bailey + Joshua Petherick). Her practice is a site for an engagement with: materiality and its relationship to the production of context and sociability, multiplicity, excess, the production of the local, issues of sustainability, the question of how practice can be made public in multiple formations, collaborativity, and the tension and productive relation between the notion of the individual and the collective (in both a material and social sense.)
