Queer in Kingston

A collaborative project by established projection artist, Yandell Walton and emerging digital media artist, Willow Franklin, created with Queer in Kingston. This immersive multimedia exhibition explores queer identity from the perspectives of Queer in Kingston, a social support group for LGBTQIA+ young people living in the City of Kingston.

Yandell Walton is a Melbourne-based artist whose work encompasses projection, installation, and interactive digital media. Through work that melds architectural space with the projected image, Yandell has become recognised for her public projection works that merge the actual and the virtual to investigate notions of impermanence in relation to environmental, social and political issues.

Willow Franklin is an emerging digital artist who creates through the lens of their queer identity. Their work is about gender presentation and the expectations that come with this identity. They work primarily with digital manipulation and collage using archival media.

Queer in Kingston (QiK) is an inclusive, confidential, social support group for young people aged 14-25 years, who identify as same sex attracted, gender diverse, queer or questioning. The group of young people that attend QiK are supported to feel confident in the exploration of who they are, whilst being provided with a safe and fun atmosphere.
