A multidisciplinary emerging visual artist from Adelaide, Australia, Elise Bonato is a practitioner of the visual-aural arcane. Her predominantly experimental and performance-based practice aims to create an oeuvre of elegiac beauty through moving image, installation, drawing and painting.
Elise completed graduate studies in 2012, awarded with First Class Honours at the University of South Australia, with an investigation into the use of video installation as a means of presenting a contemporary sublime.
In recent years, she has exhibited locally in Australia as well as internationally in the United States, while also performing at a variety of arts festivals. Elise is currently based in New York, participating in a six-month residency with the New York Art Residency & Studios (NARS) Foundation.
