Carolyn Craig works as a fulltime artist and educator and is a current postgraduate student and staff member at the Queensland College of Art, Brisbane. Her work focuses on how systems of power are enacted on the body. Recent work has investigated the potential for a gendered self free from socially constructed constraints of normalcy. Normalcy is queried by exploiting the spaces between codified knowledge in an attempt to find a zone of deterratorialised space (as described by Deleuze and Guattari) to create new perspectives of knowledge.
The studio investigations focus on the field of expanded printmaking where object, performance and film can be integrated within old technologies to create new material dialogues.
Carolyn has been a finalist in the Freemantle Prize, the Burnie, Silkcut, and Churchie Prize and was awarded the Marie Ellis Prize for Drawing in 2014.
Her most recent shows include G(r)azing On Flesh at the Hold Artspace in Brisbane, Identity at Port Jackson Press and When Vowels Collide at Gallery Smith Project Space, Melbourne.
