Deborah Joyce Holman will be undertaking a residency at Gasworks supported by Pro Helvetia from 30 September - 16 December 2019.
Deborah’s work and writings negotiate notions of authorship and subjectivity, representation and presence from an intersectional perspective. Her work confronts the commodification of Otherness, complicating the narrative on the representation of queer people of colour and other marginalised groups. These questions are present in her texts, which are almost always in dialogue with or incorporated into objects and sculpture.
During her residency at Gasworks, Deborah hopes to further invest in this exploration by researching Black queer voices within the European continent.
