Ambivalent realities : postcolonial experiences in contemporary visual arts practice

Daniels, Marcel (2014) Ambivalent realities : postcolonial experiences in contemporary visual arts practice. Masters by Research by Creative Works, Queensland University of Technology.


This practice-led research project investigates how new postcolonial conditions require new methods of critique to fully engage with the nuances of real world, 'lived' experiences. Framed by key aspects of postcolonial theory, this project examines contemporary artists' contributions to investigations of identity, race, ethnicity, otherness and diaspora, as well as questions of locality, nationality, and transnationality. Approaching these issues through the lens of my own experience as an artist and subject, it results in a body of creative work and a written exegesis that creatively and critically examine the complexities, ambiguities and ambivalences of the contemporary postcolonial condition.
