About the course facilitator

ADHOC develops psychosocial encounters that motivate individuals to publicly and collectively address the private anxieties that shape systems of personal belief. The work is a conceptually driven and multi-disciplinary institutional and socio-political critique; a form of prosopopoeiae the artist describes as remote performativity.

Text is a primary departure point, informing a constantly shifting body of new media, drawing, sculpture, writing, design, performance, tattoo and events.

ADHOC is currently completing a Masters researching the effects of childhood trauma on object desire and artistic practise at The Centre For Ideas, VCA.
