S.J Norman is a cross-disciplinary artist and writer. He is a non-binary transmasculine person and a diasporic Koori of Wiradjuri descent, born on Gadigal land. Norman’s work centers the corporeal and the inter-corporeal: he inhabits and disrupts the prevailing vocabularies of performance as a queer/ed Indigenous body, addressing that body as both site and material. He utilizes ephemeral, process-based and long-durational practices as a means of antagonizing the prevailing economies of colonial spectatorship and capital value, as well as a means to excavate and elevate embodied knowledges. He lives and works between Kulin Country (Melbourne, Australia); Berlin, Germany, and Lenapehkoking (New York City).
