Guest Speaker at Ulster University as part of the RIAD lecture series under the Creative Ecologies Research Cluster.
Land, Cloth, Body and Culture.
Abstract: Interweave of narrative, materiality and identity define Catherine Harper’s intellectual and practice obsessions. Her visual, material, performic examination of Northern Irish womanhood, her investigation of both intersex and ‘anatomical drag’, and her concern with fabrics of death and desire, each demonstrate a preoccupation with trying to make sense of the complexities of land, cloth, body and culture.
