Artist and writer Every Ocean Hughes was Camden Art Centre’s ‘Artist-at-large’ digital residency artist throughout 2018 and 2019.
During this time Hughes developed a new body of research which they had been working over the last three year exploring the idea of ‘queer death’. Questioning notions of self-determination, mutual aid, the fantasy of continuity, finitude, accountability and end-of-life aesthetics, Hughes used the histories of kinship and care within LGBTQ communities to explore what it meant to survive and die on our planet in our current times.
With this residency, Hughes produced a digital publication of an interview they conducted with filmmaker Barbara Hammer prior to their death earlier that year. This publication has been edited by Corrine Fitzpatrick and designed by Bryce Wilner and Matthew Wolff.
