From the position of a queer, middle-aged artist living and working on Dhudhuroah Country (NE Vic.), Ashe’s interdisciplinary art practice examines the politics of belonging. Recently Ashe has been focused on extending his installation practice into new forms of expression and territories, further questioning our broken social systems. Et sequentia is an iteration of a new installation in progress. It resides within recent personal experiences whereby the arbitrary and bureaucratic systems that govern our collective human existence within the constructed world have been magnified. The impositions of these political mandates and the continuing and intensified bureaucratic processes being given new urgency continue to dissociate from the personal, the intimate, and render being as data. The promises made under the guise of technological connectivity and societal advancements render our most vulnerable mute, isolated, unnoticed, unaccounted for, withdrawn and outside community.
