DAY MAGEE

PERFORMANCE

Day’s work concerns the induction and enactment of temporality and subjectivity via bodily vectors, and the lived mythographies of selfhood – the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves as simultaneously lived out. Adopting a phenomenological methodology to the live and lens-based performance of images and words, they chronicle their own bodily narrativisations of queerness, disability, and religiosity, towards an unbecoming of the self.
