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. His recent arts practice explores the haptic hands on aspects of photography and its relationship to memory, place, and narrative.  Andrew is currently developing this research area into the field of intergenerational epigenetic inheritance which, in this instance, asserts the idea that our bodies remember the places that our ancestors lived in, even though we haven’t been there.  He is interested in how photography can help to tap into such embodied memories.
