Acknowledgement of Country

I acknowledge the Bidjigal and Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, the Ngunnawal people and the Dharug people who are the traditional owners of the lands in which I work on. I pay my respects to elders past and present and acknowledge that this will always be Aboriginal land. I extend that respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples here today.

ABOUT Aria-Joshes Keeshan

Aria Joshes is an activist multidisciplinary Sculpture and Performance Artist who typically works with a range of unusual mediums. Her work mostly deals with Family Violence, Internalised Capitalism, Environmentalism, and Psychogeography. Her work both deals with oppression and agency as she expresses a narrative not commonly explored in art. Aria particularly likes to open up dialogues not often explored and well known in mainstream society. As domestic violence is fairly well known, the concept of family violence is not often explored in terms of psychological abuse. A general reading of her work is that she enacts the 7 stages of grief she experiences as she processes her healing from Family Violence. Aria's aesthetic often borders on the lines between absurdity and abject as she makes bold statements in her work in order to inspire a call to action. She also makes statement's that question gender identity and whether these social constructs are empowering or oppressive in reference to feminist discourses.
