[Publication] Dissent: A Creative Practice (2018)

CAS’ first publication in the
Chapter 1. Dissent series reflects on the 2015 Laboratory of Dissent to consider ‘dissent’ as a creative methodology.

  1. Susan considers ‘the relational self’ and how it might create an interstice for a constructive dissent.
  2. Maija focuses on ‘individual dissent for collective change’ exploring how dissent is part of a non-linear process of mutual creativity.
  3. Yonat asks whether the performative act (including mis-performance) can be understood as a link between a painting and that “outside it”.

An exploration of theory and practice, this is an anthology of three very different essays by artists Susan Francis, Yonat Nitzan-Green and Maija Liepins.

Published by Maija Liepins

Australian born, mixed-media artist, Maija Liepins focuses on the sensory and emotional experience in her visual dreamscapes. Repetitive actions such as dream journals or collecting visual impressions with her mobile phone generates material with which to reveal the subtle, ‘underneath’. Maija’s drawings and films allude to a symbolic mythology as if the intangible substance of dream is a material as real as ink and clay. Her practice is driven by a pursuit of freedom - to express, to create, and to collaborate without inculturated inhibition.
