HAUNTINGS, 2018

an event


A queer body, coming into being in Northern Ontario, has had no vision of itself in the real. In this circumstance, queerness could only be found in the digital realm; reduced to images, flattened and fragmented—always at a distance. Any semblance of recognition mediated by a layer of separation. The experience of otherness is not unique to queerness, which is why the circulation of images matters in the production of identity, community, and in a collective conception of truth. How might engagement with an archive begin to untangle subjectivity, truth, perception, and embodiment—especially in an age increasingly mediated by a constant flow of disembodied digital images ?
