SJ Norman

Sydney, NSW

SJ Norman (he/him/they/them) is a cross-disciplinary artist and writer. His artistic trajectory is informed by a diverse range of practices, disciplines and methodologies, and incorporates performance, text, video and sound. SJ is a non-binary transgender person and a diasporic Koori, born on Gadigal land (with familial and ancestral connections to Wiradjuri, Wonnaruah and Ngyiampaa lands); as such, their practice is routed through the volatile interstices of the social and the corporeal. Norman seeks through much of his work to implicate the audience and the performer as co-agents in magickal acts, through which they seek to forge hybrid languages of ritual and queer de-colonial knowledge-making.
