Christine Dixie

b.1966

Christine Dixie's work is predominantly focussed on two interlinked concerns, the visual strategies deployed in frontier landscape representation and the narratives used in constructing images of gender. Extending the boundaries of print making as a medium by working in installation and by using a variety of matrix's and materials, her work is intent on drawing the viewer into a mesmeric yet disquieting space.

In 2012 she was awarded an Artist Research Fellowship at the Smithsonian Institute, Washington D.C. Her work is represented in national and international collections including The New York Public Library, The Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, The Johannesburg Art Museum and the Iziko South African National Gallery.

The installation The Binding, 2010, which examines the relationship between sacrifice and male identity, was acquired by the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, the prints were exhibited there and at the Kunst Museum in Berlin, as part of in The Divine Comedy by Simon Njami.

Her latest multi-media installation, To Be King was exhibited in Venice at the European Cultural Centre and was selected for exhibition at the Coronet International Festival, London (2017). In 2018 the installation will travel to the Izoko South African National Gallery, and the Kaunas in Art Festival in Lithuania.
