Dale Collier

Installation. Film. Photography

“Memories Redact! This is not Refuse, We’ve all been Framed”  is driven by Dale’s desire to re-contextualise discarded objects together with neglected histories, in an amplified emotional response to throw-away culture and Australian history. Dale Collier proposes that we can’t just dispose of our history with the same disregard we have for the family’s slightly out-dated television set. Dale is the 2014 winner of the University of Newcastle Margaret Olley Post Graduate Art Scholarship Award. An emerging interdisciplinary arts activist Dale embraces the relationship between new media, live art and community cultural development.

As an emerging fine artist Dale has become increasingly fascinated by the different ways people relate to and associate with, objects of a throwaway culture. Old televisions, picture frames, used furniture, unwanted tools and toys, even gifts, are what shape the basis of Dale’s material investigation. His art practice gains focus throughout the journey and the projection of one’s identity in relation to the ‘leftover’ material products of consumer society. Dale’s conceptual enquiries are concerned with issues associated with consumerism and via monumentalisation of objects in video installation art, questions the notions of value and meaning making.
