Troy-Anthony Baylis: Queerly speaking

 My art practice engages with queering as a strategy, to unsettle the ways that Aboriginality is constructed as pure and untainted by the complexity of sexuality, mixed ethnographies, mixed geographies and mixed appearances. By making works of art from different positions of identity I am taking part in reigniting, reinvigorating, and reimagining Queer-Aboriginal knowledge against the conventional ways in which colonisation has denied, repressed, and muted non-heterosexual ways of being, knowing, and doing Aboriginality. This activism is enacted through my studio practice, materials and subject matter.
