We acknowledge that we live and work on unceded country. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.

Tessa Zettel works collaboratively between disciplines as an artist, writer and researcher to imagine and enact other ways of living. Her participatory projects respond to the contexts in which they occur, using a kind of fabulist archaeology to make visible contested histories & possible futures. This involves bringing speculative forms of mapping, storytelling, writing, drawing, performance and exchange to overlooked or devalued cultural practices and knowledge. Grown on Gadigal lands, since 2015 Tessa has been transiently resident in artist communities from France, Finland and Estonia to China. She is co-founder of micro-publishing platform Cloudship Press and slow-growth collective Weathering, and a co-director at Sydney’s not-only-artist-run space & library Frontyard Projects. Tessa is also a member of public art/architecture group Collective Disaster and taught for over ten years in Interdisciplinary Design at the University of Technology Sydney.
