Welsh born New Zealand based artist Tim Gruchy has spent over 30 years in the exploration and composition of immersive and interactive multimedia through installation, music and performance while redefining its role, challenging the delineations between cultural sectors.
He has exhibited multimedia works, photography, video, music and performance since the 1980s as well as his larger expressions in the public art arenas. His works are held in private, corporate and museum collections.
His installations and performances feature in many international and Australasian institutions, festivals and public spaces. Tim’s work has been exhibited in Africa, Australia, New Zealand, China, Taiwan, Holland, Belgium, UK, USA, Japan, France and Thailand.
He is represented by Trish Clark Gallery in Auckland, where his most recent solo exhibition was Kade’s Cognition in Feb 2016
Tim has lectured and facilitated workshops in video art and interactive digital design at creative institutions around the world including Shanghai; Future University of Hakodate (Japan); National Institute of Dramatic Art (Sydney); University of Technology Sydney; Te Papa (New Zealand) and Queensland University of Technology (Brisbane). He has also been extensively involved in museum design and various projects at the intersection of architecture and multimedia.
