Dr Andrew Dearman

Dr Andrew Dearman joined Adelaide Central School of Art in 2012. His practice-led PhD dealt with the notion that contemporary art practice is a posed form of subjectivity - one which is determined less by the individual, and more by a plethora of social institutions and practices. He has a studio at Fontanelle (2012 onwards) where he is developing some of the image content from his previous research area, and reworking it using 19th century photographic techniques such as Ambrotypes and Cyanotypes. Andrew also uses handmade cameras that are made out of cardboard boxes as a means of heightening and returning the material qualities of the photographs.
