Andrew Treloar is an artist working between contemporary art, dance and fashion design through multiple practices and collaborations. These include recent projects with Henry Jock Walker, Jack Riley, Daniel Riley, Dancenorth, Jo Lloyd, Marrugeku, Lucy Guerin Inc., and Chunky Move. His design work has shown across many venues and festivals throughout Australia including the 2018 Commgames Opening Ceremony.

He completed a Masters in Fine Art by Research in 2014 at University of Melbourne, Faculty of Fine Arts and Music (VCA) studying interrelationships between training and conditioning practices in dance and sport to generate processes for making art works. Andrew’s Visual Arts practice includes a strong component of problem-solving and material research, which has covered wearable sculptures (Metal. 2020), techno-slime installations (The Venusian Slip 1.0) and multi-venue live-streams (Porous Space. Simultaneous Event., 2014).

In collaboration with Harrison Hall, Harrison Ritchie-Jones and Luigi Vescio, he made and produced The Venusian Slip, which had successful seasons in 2018 and 2020.
