Claire Ridge

PhD Student

Research Subject and Interests

Through my practice-based PhD research I am investigating the disruptive potential of the image to pose a queer feminist durationality. My inquiry focuses on dance and performance practices that enact anachronisms, interruptions and jerks in linear time, and reignite queer feminist histories or ways of seeing. In my practice I am investigating the use of screens and multiple frames in live performance to explore the potentials of representation. My research synthesises and intervenes in a conversation emerging from experimental feminist art practices, process philosophies and queer theory.
