Mary Elizabeth Hogan is an artist and organizer working across the disciplines of performance, writing, and visual production to research the critical potential of 'language' as an artistic medium and a tool for the cultivation of a radical consciousness. She maintains this pursuit because of an acknowledgement of lack- an inevitable deficiency in systems of connection (cultural, economic, ethnographic, ideologic, and technologic) and a desire to reimagine these ?failures? as opportunities for movement. This is often facilitated through text, performance, and collaborative practices. She has developed a system of contingent research zones: experimental geography, psychoanalytic theory, collectivity, and linguistic analysis to approach the same center from several points: as language determines our being-in-the-world how can it be employed as a creative medium for positive subversion?
