Current Research       Projects       About

Giulia Astesani is an artist, lecturer, and PhD candidate at the Glasgow School of Art. She lives and works between London and Glasgow.

Through an expanded performative practice, her work engages with an active process of archiving queer lives while critically questioning contemporary representations of queerness. In her work she prioritises the use of feeling and emotions as valuable research tools, proposing strategies of unknowing, un-doing and unbecoming in opposition to oppressive normative narratives of progress, success and happiness.

Her current research proposes a collaborative art practice involving the forming of a 'chorus' as an act of scrutiny, attending to how language can uphold and perpetuate heteropatriarchal cultural narratives while investigating strategies that can stretch and queer meaning.
