MADISON KELLY

Australia 1993

I’m a queer feminist artist based in Melbourne. Contextualised by identity politics, queer theory and ideas of radical empathy, my work draws upon blurred boundaries between fiction and non-fiction, confession and narrative. My current research is concerned with unwaged and emotional labour, investigating why and how particular expressions of work are devalued and what the personal and political consequences of this are.
