About




Zoë Bastin is an artist, choreographer and researcher based in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia. By reimagining the relationship between the human body and its environment, her works respond to architecture and transform our perception of space and atmosphere. Interested in how bodies move through the world to navigate the political and societal structures that govern us, Bastin employs choreography to change perceptions of corporeality in relation to time, place and culture.

Zoë holds a PhD in Fine Art from RMIT University (2021) which contemplates the affectual relationship of gender and sexuality on bodies from a queer-feminist lens. She is currently a member of Darebin City Council’s Art and Heritage Advisory Panel and a lecturer at Deakin University. In 2024 Zoë founded her own company Zoë Bastin Dance, making her the first female queer artistic director of a Contemporary Dance Company in Australia.

Bastin has exhibited widely across Australia, undertaken several residencies both nationally and internationally. Her projects have been presented at Abbotsford Convent, Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, BLINDSIDE, Bus Projects, C A V E S Gallery, Centre for Projection Art, c3 Contemporary Art Space, Collingwood Yards, Counihan Gallery, Dancehouse, Deakin University Art Gallery, Headspace Australia, Horsham Regional Gallery, Her works have been presented at Mornington Peninsula Regional Art Gallery, KINGS Artist Run, Logan Art Gallery, MADA Gallery Monash University, Midsumma Festival, Negative Press, No Vacancy Gallery, Paradise Hills Gallery, Project Space RMIT University, School Of Art and Design Gallery Australian National University, Seventh Gallery, Silver Leaf Art Box, SUBSTATION, Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery, Temperance Hall, Tinning St Presents, Villa Lena Art Fondazione Tuscany Italy and West Space.
