For more than a decade, Damiano Bertoli has been concerned with the idea of a ‘continuous moment’, using the principles of collage to reveal the convergence of events or artworks across time. This has taken form in video, painting, sculpture and installation, appropriating historical elements to be recombined into Bertoli’s temporal continuum.
Some of Bertoli’s recent solo exhibitions include: Continuous Moment: Big Foot's Studio Distant Measures, VCA Margaret Lawrence Gallery, 2016; Damiano Bertoli: Come to Now, TCB Art Inc., Melbourne, 2015; Continuous Moment: Sordid's Hotel, Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne, 2014; and Continuous Moment: Anxiety Villa, Artspace, Sydney, 2011. Some of the recent group exhibitions in which he has participated include: Melbourne Now, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 2013; New Psychedelia, University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane, 2011; South by Southeast: Australasian Video Art, Yebisu International Festival for Art and Alternative Visions, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo, 2011; Stick It! Collage in Australian Art, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 2010; and NEW07, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne, 2007.
