Anna Bunting-Branch’s work in painting, moving image and writing explores feminist visions and re-visions of history. Inspired by the desire for different kinds of languages – as between painting and digital animation; image and object; fact and fiction – her practice plays with the boundaries between forms, disciplines and genres.
Anna is currently undertaking a practice-related PhD at Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, supported by the AHRC London Arts & Humanities Partnership. Her thesis, titled ‘Practicing the Difference––Reading feminist science fiction with Luce Irigaray’, considers feminist SF as a methodology to approach the speculative question of sexual difference in both theory and practice.
