Holly Childs

Artiste

Holly Childs is a writer, artist, and performance-maker based in Naarm (Melbourne). Their work, across fiction, poetry, visual art and performance focuses on the shifting mechanisms of storytelling in a contemporary world in which physical matter is constantly being reshaped, recontextualised, and rewritten by emerging technologies.

Holly Childs and Gediminas Žygus  have released two albums, Gnarled Roots (2021), exploring 21st-century mythologies revolving around the fall of the twin towers on 9/11; and Hydrangea (2020), exploring intimacy, disconnection, and reality bubbles. Together they have created performances based on these two albums that have been performed in botanical greenhouses, galleries, a medieval church, a former bathhouse and a former bear enclosure.
