Casey Jenkins (VIC)

Immaculate is an intimate, durational artwork about transforming and reframing the conception of a child, through the lens of queer experience.

Casey Jenkins is a Melbourne-based installation and performance artist. Their work explores social and institutional power dynamics and notions of intimacy, temporality and identity with a focus on feminism and gender. Casey combines tactility with technology, craft with performance, and makes work that ranges from the meditative to the disruptive, from minimalist solo durational performance to street art and experimental group performances.

In this new, personal work Casey is creating a sanctuary for witnessing and reflecting on non-hetero and solo reproduction, the controls put on a queer body which resists being controlled, and the hope, fear and strength inherent in the process of conceiving alone.
