Object Detail

Multi-disciplinary artist Jordana Bragg’s practice spans writing, live performance, and still and moving image. Concentrating on the metaphysics of love and loss, their practice discloses a characteristically dangerous personal and universal sense of vulnerability, often putting their body front and centre of their performative work.

Informed by wider research around issues of identity and gender fluidity, Bragg’s work connects with ideas of social and political anxiety, stamina, non-binary or queerness, and relies on their documentation of personal and abstracted thought processes.

Each of these three images is a still extracted from video documentation of ten live and private performance works, produced in response to a simple set of provocatively personal questions. Titled (in order of hang) What do you fight for?,
Where feels like home? and What’s next? for Bragg, this photographic series consistently posits the androgynous body as central necessary weaponry in our contemporary world.

Jordana Bragg (born 1994, Auckland) graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons) from Massey University College of Creative Arts in 2015, and is currently undertaking an MFA through Monash University, Melbourne. Bragg is co-founder of the artist run initiatives Meanwhile in Wellington and Friends are Artists/Freunde sind Künstler in Berlin. Bragg lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.
