Through the methodology of psychlore, I examine folkloric narratives and their psychosocial implications. Drawing on Marina Warner’s perspective that allegorical folklore can operate as a subversive device for encrypting and disseminating personal and political material, I recreate historical findings by weaponising the allegorical as a dissenting form of communication in my work. Through this pedagogical process, the psyche and its environment are navigated and personal and political interdependencies investigated. Subsequently, my works come to operate as semiotic storytellers; they speak to and with the loric narratives from which they are spawned.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung people of the Kulin Nations, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
