Samuel Hodge

Samuel Hodge is an artist in residence at the Clothing Store whose projects have taken the form of exhibitions, publications, online platforms, fashion shoots and text-based work. His practice is centred on the re-appropriation of what remains and the merging of images, sometimes assisted with text, dye, play doh, beads, silk and paper.

In a two part performative lecture, Samuel Hodge will present previous work, speaking to ideas around queer temporality, trauma, fracture and the problematic search for the authentic experience.

Moving between photography, sculpture and research, Samuel’s practice explores understandings and negotiations of the contemporary queer experience through creative practices and archives that contain motifs of trauma, fracture and fragmentation.

Subjects vary, and often a queer gaze is applied to manipulate the intention of the original in order to interrogate modes of narrative and constructions of the self at play. What remains is instead submitted to a state of ambiguity; to a constant state of ecstatic and desirous resistance and conclusive representation.
