nova Milne (nee Ms&Mr) is a third mind, and living archive - an assemblage of time-perspectives that began with their documented encounter as teenagers.
Through expanded installations including time-based media, sculpture, and 2D works, nova Milne create moments of connection or disruption, often taking the form of encounters across the breach of time. They release the occult potential of found material by forging new sympathies between amateur or documentary sources and elaborate new fabrications. Their process invents a de-centered point of view and the question of inter-subjectivity, forms an ongoing curiosity alongside considerations of time, mysticism, longing, and empathy.
Projects include solo exhibitions at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Artspace, Sydney. They’ve shown in institutions such as the Kadist Foundation (Paris), The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, The Museum of Old and New Art, The Rodin Museum and the National Taiwan Museum of Art. The duo was awarded a collaborative MFA from the College of Fine Arts, UNSW. Their work is represented in private and public collections including The Centre Pompidou and The Art Gallery of Western Australia. They are recent fellows of the Bemis Center, Omaha and the ISCP in New York.
