Dr

Alexander Selenitsch

 

Alex Selenitsch graduated as an architect in 1969, and has worked as an architect and urban designer in public and private practices in Australia and England, with long stretches as a sole practitioner in Melbourne. He has taught architectural design, theory and history at Deakin University, RMIT and the University of Melbourne.

He was awarded a PhD by The University of Melbourne in 2008 for his thesis Sets, Series and Suites: composing the multiple artwork. He currently teaches in Architectural Design.

His creative practice ranges from literature and graphics to sculpture, furniture and architecture. His concrete poems were the first of the genre to be published in Australia, and he continues to research and publish the aesthetic possibilities of a spatial literature. His creative practice exploits the creative interaction of pre-set systems and conditions against improvisation and intuitive processes. He exhibits this work nationally, and examples are held in various national and state public collections. He is represented by grahame galleries + editions, Brisbane, and Place Gallery, Melbourne. He also writes essays and reviews of art, craft and design for professional publications.
