Cultural Dysphoria: Exploring British Asian Female Identities Through Arts Practices

Cultural Dysphoria can be understood as the dissonance between the social expectations of an individual’s cultural performance or identity, and their desired embodiment of that culture, or uncertainty about where they fit into existing cultural categories. My research will examine this firstly as a conceptual model, exploring the nature of being to understand difference through cultural experience; secondly, as a material model, embodying experience of dissonance using the phenomenon of Cultural Dysphoria. The research will draw upon my own practice as an established artist. I will use sculpture, performance and film building upon my previous research and the autoethnographic approaches.
