Morning Person of the Day: Sarah Loggie
Meet Sarah Loggie (@sarahloggie), Artist, Researcher, and 27x CreativeMornings/Auckland attendee!
What is your first and/or most meaningful CreativeMornings experience?
I’ve been coming to CreativeMornings for as long as I can remember… Wait, no! Longer…I must have attended my first event at some stage during 2012. Standout talks would have to include: Elisabeth Vaneveld, Sarah and Otis Frizzell, Richie Hardcore, Sarah Longbottom, Simon Pound, Oliver Driver, Sarah Lancaster, Imogen Parry and Joyce Campbell.
A fair few… What I value most about CreativeMornings is that it provides a platform for our community to come together to share our passions, sense of purpose and stories as well as our struggles and sadness. CreativeMornings disrupts the barriers we often put up between public and private life — there’s immense power and strength in that.
Describe the work that you do and the impact you’re trying to make.
I’m an artist and a researcher by trade. I make paintings, sculptures and sound-based artworks. At the moment, I am working towards a Master of Creative Technologies at Colab. My research centres on performativity – the notion that written or spoken communication practices produce rather than merely describe the subjects and objects which they name. Performativity emerges out of a formidable history within feminist and queer theory; I’m particularly interested in the work of Judith Butler, Donna Haraway and Karen Barad. Theory often gets a bad rep… I challenge this. Through my research, I seek to highlight how historically dominant belief structures form our social reality today.
Tell us something about yourself that we can’t find on Google.
I like rollmops.
