About the Curator
Amanda Jane Graham is an award-winning visual artist and sociologist. She narrates her story through a reflexive practice by delving into personal history and excavating memories, experiences, and emotions, some of which are challenging but rigorously scrutinised and almost always, humour emerges. Graham articulates the personal audit through references to humour in popular culture.
