Nicholas Brocchi practices within a post-natural matrix wherein no element of the cognitive or material realm is fixed or permanent. Their experiments with video and installation highlight the inherent plasticity of sex and gender identity by forcing the artist and the viewer to undergo processes of conceptual and physical transformation. Recent installations attempt to expose the private sphere as a heterosexual privilege and a site of Queer oppression. Demanding the right to speak as no one in particular, their intimate and vulnerable explorations of identity transcend the limits of the personal and the particular in an effort to establish an intrinsically diverse or differentiated universal.
Brocchi is co-founder of the Queer College of Art, a collective that conducts lectures, presentations and seminars on critical Queer theory in Brisbane. One of the founding aims of the Queer College of Art is to provide a safe space for Brisbane’s Queer communities to engage in critical discourse.

With a focus on outward manifestations of embodied experience, vulnerability, anxiety, and the dialogue between the real and the imagined, Hart invites audiences to challenge the architecture of their own identities, perception, and memory.
