The artist is Australian, Mauritian, a member of the millennial generation and non-binary whom uses they/them pronouns. Kieran experiments with form and colour in the context of the photographic still life and portrait to explore gender politics, dandyism, practices of drag, queerness, identity presentation, reading and passing. Working towards a non-binary philosophy of photography Kieran employs transgender studies as a methodology to reflect on a queer construction of the photographic medium and identity politics. Kieran draws from the shared properties of illusion, material transformation and magic that uniquely characterise the non-binary and photography.
Rather than defining the photograph as an image, an object or a performance, their work reads as neither and all simultaneously. Their photographs present themselves confusedly, eclectically, naively and flamboyantly; a performance of identity formation where one transforms from an image, to an object, right before your eyes.
