Jon  Cairns


I am a writer and artist whose work engages with queer historiography and the ambivalence of interpretation, recently hinging on the mobile relationships between photography and performance, and between 'fact' and 'fiction'.

My recent projects have included curating an exhibition and publication based on found photographic material and domestic memorabilia; online artworks for slashseconds; conference papers and articles in UK and internationally, including for 'Photography and Culture'. I'm currently working on a collaborative exhibition with Julia Spicer.
