Current Practice

My current practice-led research investigates how trauma can be materialised and encountered as queer reparative holding. The research approaches the events from which trauma emerges as segments that are materially invested, investments that cannot be reversed but can instead be folded and refolded. Through working with processes of transposing, remixing, and performatively re-encountering, the concept of grasp-ability is explored. This aims to set up a material-temporal movement capable of generating greater ability to take hold of, articulate, and move-with trauma.
