Death and Control, 2017
Samuel Hodge (b. Glen Innes, Australia) is a multi-disciplinary artist whose projects have taken the form of exhibitions, publications, online platforms, fashion shoots, and text-based work.
His practice explores understandings and negotiations of the contemporary queer experience through creative practices and archives that contain motifs of trauma, fracture and fragmentation. It presupposes these fractures, exposing (uncovers/releases) new queer experiences as well as being, in itself queer in nature.
His research into archives that speak to a queer experience of trauma, is founded from his interest in the potential of the biography to generate and extend further queer experience, and therefore challenge current conceptions of memory, queerness and political thinking.
