Alexis Destoop’s multilayered photographs excavate the interfaces between (neo) colonial, ecological, economic and geopolitical environments. Through his lens, the Belgian-born Australian artist captures the landscape not as a sublime natural object but a scrutinized human artefact; a contentious zone where borders and frontiers collide.

Currently participating in the highly anticipated 1st Riga Biennale in Latvia until October 28, Alexis Destoop recently presented his first solo show Plouton at CHAUFFEUR Sydney. 

Destoop has presented major installations at All Our Relations, 18th Sydney Biennale, AGNSW, Performance Space at CARRIAGEWORKS, ARGOS Centre for Media Art, Brussels, Galeria Continua, Italy, SMAK Museum of Contemporary Art, Gent, Belgium, Museum of Contemporary Art (MARTa), Hertford, Germany, Musee des Beaux-Arts, Lille, France and Seattle Art Fair, USA.

Public collections include ARGOS, Centre for Media Art, Brussels and the National Bank of Belgium Collection amongst private collections in Europe, US and Australia.
