View CV

Simon Zoric is a visual artist whose practice spans installation, sculpture, drawing, text and video producing humorous works that satirise contemporary art, celebrity and the white male. Blending the high and low of contemporary culture, Zoric’s works are often crude and disruptive. His works take aim at the institution, contemporary society, the history of art and most importantly, himself. Often deploying his own image, Zoric exposes contemporary angst by matter-of-factly presenting the literal as a way to subvert assumptions, power and archetypes.


Zoric graduated with a Master of Fine Art from the VCA in 2014 and has exhibited widely in Australia for the past decade. Selected recent solo projects include: Coffin Rides, Gertrude Contemporary, Pig in a Poke, Gertrude Contemporary, From The Desk Of, TCB, What I Can Do and What I Will and Won’t Do, West Space. Recent selected group exhibitions include: Hope In The Dark, Gertrude Contemporary, Café Spit, Galerie PCP (Paris), Unproductive Thinking, Deakin University, On Hubris, Irony and Schadenfreude, LON Gallery and Lots of Nudes, LON Gallery.


He has been the recipient of a New Work Grant from the Australia Council For the Arts, the John D and Susan P Diekman Fellowship, an Ian Potter Cultural Trust Grant, an Australia Council Artstart Grant and two awards from The National Gallery of Victoria’s Trustees. Zoric has undertaken residencies at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program, USA, Sim Residency, Iceland and Gertrude Contemporary, Australia.
