PAUL GAZZOLA operates an interdisciplinary practice of over 20 years across art, architecture, performance, curation, installation, choreography, scenographic design, video and theory. He creates and curates works for galleries, museums, stages, site-specific settings, print and projection, in Australia and internationally.
Originally trained as a carpenter, he has a B.A. in Performance, is a qualified Feldenkrais practitioner and in 2004 commenced studies in architecture. The culmination of these varied inquiries, each exploring the connection/intervention between the body and the built form, provide a unique platform of knowledge in his working life.
Alongside his own work he has collaborated, designed and performed with such companies as Fieldworks Performance Group (Aus) and Les Ballets C de le B (Belgium) and with various European choreographers/artists such as Xavier Le Roy, Nadia Cusimano, Meg Stuart and Tino Sehgal. He is also a founding member and ongoing collaborator of Lone Twin Theatre (UK). He is currently Artistic Director of Open Space Contemporary Arts.
