Presence looks at the ways in which the presence of the body is signified and materially understood through discussions of autonomy, the digital body, queer embodied experience and fetishisation.

Focusing on sculptural forms and non-literal depictions of body, the project engages artists from marginalised perspectives as central to inform its discussion. Presence challenges the heteronormative gaze's relationship with body through asserting the power of a queer gaze and approach to artistic practice.
