Jordana Bragg: Love will tear us apart
"Love will tear us apart" is the official graduate exhibition by Aotearoa, New Zealand born Master of Fine Art (by Research) candidate Jordana Bragg.
Informed by two years of dedicated research in the field of trans/feminist, gender, and queer art theory, "Love will tear us apart" features large and small scale works across video, photography, performance, and poetry. The subject matter and liminality of the works across media are designed to action the exegesis proposition:
- that the term queer embraces opacity, and obscurity as its central function,
- that failure(s) in any form are productively queer,
- and that working with failure(s) as a site, is a space fit for queer utility.
LWTUA asks: within the inherent violence of category, where gender and romantic love meet, are there any ways of escape? what are the alternatives?
