Living Room Volume II
Chris Bond
17 October 2021


Living Room is an ongoing series of short experimental films by visual artist Nina Sanadze. Idiosyncratically shot on a mobile phone, each film presents a portrait of an Australian artist captured in their home studio space, as well as the hard reality of their experience of paid employment.


Chris Bond is an artist and character who inhabits the uncanny worlds of his own invention. His fictional scenarios require him to adopt auto-fictive, pseudonymous and collaborative authorial personae in which he attempts to shift habitual response, experience new ways of seeing and cultivate atypical expressions. Fictional artists, writers and organisations are typically invented as a support mechanism, which provide Bond with documentary material that he appropriates and recontextualises within his painting and installation practices.

Chris completed a Doctor of Philosophy in Fine Arts (Visual Art) at VCA in 2018, in which he considered the role of dissociation in the manipulation of subjectivity within the visual arts through the invention and play of alter identities.
