PhD : Fine Art, Queer Theory, Philosophy

Thesis Title: 

Materializing the Perversities of the Palimpsest: an interrogation of ‘palimpsetuous making’ as a queer enactment in artistic research.

Thesis Questions:

In conceptualising the idea of ‘palimpsestuous making’, as a form of enactment, to what extend can it be identified in artistic research?


How does the writing/making approaches in art practices can inform the metaphorical understanding of the concepts of The Palimpsest?


How to articulate a complex sensual, sexual, ephemeral relationship in artistic research on drag, film, photography, text and film, and how to create a specific dimensionality which is infused with ‘incestuous’ perversity?
