My research is dedicated to the ethical status of animals; and by artistically thematising the pervasive animal exploitation and violence, it calls into question the dominating ideology of anthropocentrism, and the interrelated oppressions and hierarchies. The research is primarily concerned with the realm of the visual and artistic practices that attempts to understand the ethical lacuna that is animal subjection. My own creative practice arises from my enquiry and seeks to examine the unrelenting cycle of animal suffering, through intellectual and scholarly endeavour enabling me to identify and describe the theoretical and historical debates relevant to this theme and to contextualise my practice.
