Therese Keogh

IXDM Researcher in Residence

Therese Keogh is an artist and writer born on Gunditjmara Country, Australia. Therese’s practice operates at intersections between sculpture, geography, and landscape architecture, to produce multilayered projects exploring the socio-political and material conditions of narrative and knowledge production. Therese works collaboratively through writing and research projects, including facilitating ‘Magnetic Topographies’ with Clare Britton and Kenzee Patterson—looking to collective pedagogies of place—and ‘Written Together’—a shared workshop for non-normative writing in arts research. Therese is invested in collective imaginaries as a process of creating more just relations to lands and waters and is currently undertaking research into ‘The Spoil Grounds’, an offshore dumping ground of dredged material from the Port of Newcastle, on Awabakal and Worimi Country, on the east coast of the Australian continent. Therese holds a BFA from Monash University, an MFA from Sydney College of the Arts, and an MA Geography from Queen Mary University of London. Therese is currently undertaking a PhD at Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne.
