Anastasia Booth’s practice centers on the problematic relationship between feminine desire and divergent sexual practice. During Booth’s 3 month residency at LEVEL her sculptural and video works have looked to the rituals, materials and iconographies associated with certain divergent subcultures. By appropriating these tropes, her resulting exhibition will consider how these signs function in portraying female sexuality and in what ways this visual language can be subverted or re-represented. On Saturday 22 February Anastasia will also be hosting a group poetry-reading event. This is an ongoing project that looks at the sensuality of written text and considers the subjective experience of narrative.
Anastasia completed her Bachelor of Fine Art (Visual Arts) with Honours at the Queensland University of Technology in 2011. She has exhibited nationally including exhibitions at the Australian Experimental Art Foundation (Adelaide), !Metro Arts (Brisbane), Inbetweenspaces (Brisbane) and was included in Hatched, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (2012). In 2014 Anastasia is commencing a PhD at QUT with the support of an Australian Postgraduate Award.
