The venue for this exhibition sits on Gadigal land, and we acknowledge traditional owners, and elders past and present.
QUEERDOM is a collaborative exhibition by photographer-poet James Eades (Jamie James, photographer and Quinn Eades, poet), and the works presented are part of a book-length queertrans counter archive in progress of Sydney's moments in queer time and place from the early nineties to now.
By rubbing photograph/image and poetry/text up against each other, these image-texts (which could also be fractals, holograms, or alephs) have a way of making heat and light; of drawing attention to the edges of queer life, where we play with the disorderly and disordering body; with what it means to carry our queertrans bodies through social and political spaces designed to not only not see us, but to not let us through the door in the first place.
Vitally, this collection of work is for LGBTIQA+ folk: this is our archive from below, these are our lives. Others may want to read/see these moments, but they are by and for us.
