Naomi Blacklock

Naomi Blacklock is an artist based in Brisbane, Australia, whose practice maps the nexus of embodied performance, culture heritage and gender identity. Working across media including experimental sound installation, performance and sculpture, her work creatively examines the mythologies, archetypes and harmful histories of gender and cultural identity. Her ritualised sound objects and performances are intended to amplify the body and voice through performative bodily precision and aural screaming.In 2019 Blacklock was awarded her Doctorate of Philosophy from Queensland University of Technology for her thesis ‘Conjuring Alterity: Refiguring the Witch and The Female Scream in Contemporary Art’. Her work has been presented at Hobart’s Art Festival, Dark Mofo and in numerous galleries and artist-run initiatives both locally and interstate.
