Kelly Fliedner

Kelly Fliedner is a writer and curator who lives across the road from Kings Park in West Perth. She grew up in regional Victoria and lived and worked in Melbourne for many years before giving it all up for warmer climes. She is interested in the intersection of fiction, criticism and theory, and thinking about the possible and impossible histories and subjectivities of art works. Prompted by living and working in Mumbai and Kochi, India, she is currently working on a PhD at the University of Western Australia focused on the discourses of postcolonialism and decolonisation as they manifest in, and are related to, contemporary art from South Asia. She is one of the editors of Semaphore. kellyfliedner.com

Kaya. We acknowledge the Whadjuk People of Boorloo boodja who are the traditional owners of the land where Semaphore is made. We respect their culture, their custodianship, and their continuing contribution to the life of this city and this region. That includes recognising and respecting sovereignty while working in solidarity towards a treaty and supporting ongoing connection to country. That means linguistic rights, economic opportunity, and artistic endeavour. To their Elders, past, present and emerging, we say thanks.
