Morgan Hogg

Morgan Hogg is an emerging artist living and working on unceded Dhurag land. She is of Cook Island and English heritage. Through the perspective of her Indigenous Moana heritage, Hogg utilises installation and performance as visual representations of her own exploration of cultural identity while living in the diaspora.

 

Hogg is a recent graduate of Sydney College of the arts, The University of Sydney. She is currently completing her Visual Arts Honours year at Sydney Collage of the arts. 

Her material practice looks at the ancestral passings of storytelling traditions and shrine-like imagery within her installations. The disconnect that colonisation has brought to the Pasifika diaspora plays within her archival research and performative storytelling dances.

 

She makes the space to work with her family to connect spiritually with her culture and Moana ancestry. Hogg creates the distance in her work that can come between us and our ancestors, and the journey that must be embarked to bring them back to us.
