My work investigates the relationship between identity and performativity. Working with images of cropped limbs, I consider the dominance of the hand; of its connection to and escape from the body. Working with motifs of fabrics, foods and various containers, I examine the value we place on the vessel. Within these works gesture is staged as a repetitive performance unfolding on a stage set, attempting to articulate a feeling of theatrical uncertainty in the performance of self and to ask the question: What parts of this performance are visible?
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the people of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
