Cal­lum Morton

Biography

Born Mon­tréal, Cana­da 1965
Lives and works in Melbourne

Cal­lum Morton’s instal­la­tion and sculp­tur­al prac­tice is inspired by archi­tec­ture and the built envi­ron­ment. His work has con­sis­tent­ly addressed the archi­tec­ture of expe­ri­ence’ – the moment of encounter between view­er and object, or view­er and built envi­ron­ment. Often, his works explore human inter­ac­tion with archi­tec­tur­al space through scale mod­els and facades of well-known build­ings. For exam­ple, Mor­ton rep­re­sent­ed Aus­tralia at the 2007 Venice Bien­nale with a scale mod­el of his child­hood home, designed and built in the 1970s in a mod­ernist style by his archi­tect father.

Morton’s work is held in impor­tant Aus­tralian and inter­na­tion­al pub­lic col­lec­tions includ­ing, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Syd­ney; Nation­al Gallery of Vic­to­ria, Mel­bourne; Muse­um of Con­tem­po­rary Art Aus­tralia, Syd­ney; Muse­um of Old and New, Hobart; Nation­al Gallery of Aus­tralia, Can­ber­ra; Queens­land Art Gallery/​Gallery of Mod­ern Art, Bris­bane; Gov­ett-Brew­ster Art Gallery, New Ply­mouth, New Zealand; and Fon­dazione Mor­ra Gre­co, Naples, among others.
