ARTIST TALK: NAOMI BLACKLOCK

 

7 November, 2018

Join Amy-Clare McCarthy in conversation with Naomi Blacklock about her current exhibition Conjuring Alterity.


Naomi Blacklock is an Anglo-Indian artist based in Brisbane, Australia who works primarily with sound installation, text works and performance. Her artworks involve an exploration and examination of mythologies regarding the witch archetype and harmful histories of gender and cultural identity. She is concerned with representations of the ‘witch’ as characterised by legal, religious and social institutions and the operation of this term by cultural minorities and LGBTQIA communities. Her ritualised sound objects and performances are intended to amplify the body and the voice through performative bodily precision and aural screaming.
