My work integrates photography, digital technology, and image modification to challenge gender and cultural identity. My artistic practice is intimately related to new materialism feminism. I use an intersectional feminist theory and practice approach in my photography production process in terms of the political agency of my work, which respects the different views and experiences of gendered bodies.
In addition, I project photographs selected from my digital photographic collection of affective memory, which I have been continually developing since 2008, onto gendered bodies. These bodies are re-signified by being re-inscribed by these images.
Patricia Amorim is a contemporary artist and researcher interested in exploring how identity can be perceived through gendered bodies from a feminist standpoint. Her practice-led research examines how contemporary digital photography affects the concept of gendered bodies and the possibilities of inscriptions of digitally altered gendered bodies in a cross-cultural setting. Amorim is a PhD candidate in the School of Arts and Humanities at Edith Cowan University and is also the recipient of an ECU Higher Degree Research Program Scholarship.
