Dane Mitchell’s practice is concerned with the physical properties of the intangible, and visible manifestations of other dimensions. His work teases out the potential for objects and ideas to appear and disappear, and our ability to perceive or imagine transfiguration. Mitchell’s practice evokes a connection between the sensual, phenomenological and speculative realms of both material and systems of knowledge or belief and our experiences of them. Working with scent, spells and shaman, Mitchell’s work channels invisible forces into concrete forms, conflating spiritualism’s concern for trace and residue with the legacies of minimalism and conceptual art.
