Jordan Cale-Riley

Profile

I am an artist and writer currently researching my practice-led Ph.D. I’m interested in places of fantasy and how theories of fantasy explore contemporary western culture and imagination. In particular, I examine speculative fiction, philosophical fiction, artists’ books and text as sculptural objects existing beyond the formatting of the page to understand their role in addressing identity, objecthood, and the occult. My work interests include: Constructed realities and philosophical notions of truth, especially, Hegel, Nietzsche, Foucault. As an autoethnographic artist, my research directly informs my practice, again informed by theory, to produce written pieces of fiction, accompanied by visual experimentation, mise en scene installations and historiographic documentation(s).
