Animaladies Conference

The program is out, the book ‘animaladies’ is printed and ready to be launched at Animaladies II.  I’m really looking forward to speaking about the developments in my work – ‘bloodlines: tracing paths from bodies to biotechnologies’.

It’s an amazing line up and I’m really proud to be an invited speaker among these scholars.

Animaladies

book cover full

Really love the design of this full cover – with boobscape wrapping around the spine.  I’m very excited for this book to be launched at Animaladies II, University of Wollongong, in December 2018, where I’ll also be an invited speaker – talking about my propositional new artwork: ‘porous boundaries: mammalian motherhood, biotechnologies and other entanglements’ which will be published in the Animal Studies Journal later in the year (hopefully).    This book features an amazing line up of writings by scholars, artists, creative writers etc.  See: https://www.bloomsbury.com/us/animaladies-9781501342165/  for the table of contents.

 

wearables:-

often my projects take on the issue of ‘wearables’ both as a performative act, and also to comment on the use of animals and their bodies in the fashion industry.
