Siouxzi Connor is an Australian-born writer and artist.
Her first book was published by Repeater Books and distributed by Penguin Random House in early 2017, titled ‘Little Houses, Big Forests (desire is no light thing).’ It was launched in London at the Tenderbooks Gallery and then in New York at Spoonbill Books, and soon to launch with an exhibition in Australia. It received coverage on the BBC World Service.
She is also a former research fellow of the ICI, having undertaken a fellowship concerning the spatial, temporal and sexual tensions within psychoanalytic films and subsequently completing an experimental narrative film titled ‘The Dangers‘ as a direct response to her research.
Now working with Uferlos.berlin Studios, their recent project ‘In the dark, dark room‘ was shot at an artist residency in Finland and is based on extracts from Siouxzi’s novel ‘Our Little Wooden House in the Forest.’
The new project, Nothing Makes Perfect Sense, a novel and a feature film, marks a culmination of her earlier works, thematically and aesthetically. Her next residency will take place at the Library of Water, Iceland, thanks to the kind facilitation of artist Olafur Eliasson.
Siouxzi has produced provocative and sensual work in writing, moving-image, installation, photography and performance in Sydney, London and throughout Europe. Extracts from her first novel, White Tales, were published by Turia & Kant (Wien/ Berlin) as part of the volume “Tension/ Spannung”.
She is based in Berlin.
