Davinia-Ann Robinson

Davinia-Ann’s practice examines how ‘Presencing’, fugitivity and tactility undo colonial and imperial frameworks through which nature and Bodies of Colour are articulated. This is done by exploring Black, Brown and Indigenous relationships to land and ‘Colonial Nature environments’. Her work addresses personal interactions with ‘colonial emotions’ she has encountered, in local, national and global environments as a Black Female Body, building on her intense relationship with soil as a living material explored through sculpture, sound, writing and performance.
