Fag Goes on the Grand Tour of Italy



Fag Goes on the Grand Tour is an interdisciplinary project where I queer the history of the Grand Tour and the performativity of travelling. Whilst in Italy I painted three large ‘capricci’ referencing archeology, architecture, history, identity, myth, and nature.

Performative Painting


The concept of performativity present in my research was closely intertwined with, and in part first emerged from, my painting practice. So the performativity of painting was a starting point for other work that I created in this project. I recorded myself in character painting the character and then projected the video recording of the act of painting onto the painting itself in order to disrupt the traditional showing and viewing of a painting.
