Ritual Slaughterer

Isabella Hone-Saunders

16 Nov–3 Dec 2022

This project is a multi-layered examination of the intersections of Judaism and queerness. It engages Jewish culture and ritual and autobiographical/ autohistorical study to explore the formation of my own experience as a queer person/ settler with Jewish ancestry. This project builds upon four years of self-led research with focus on the continuities and discontinuities of ritual across different subcultures, their malleability and their potential to be adapted to suit marginalised relationships to spirituality. Ritual Slaughterer investigates queer club culture, by way of examining the commonalities between a place of worship and a nightclub, Jewish migration to Australia and transgressive readings of Judaism and associated rituals.

This program takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded - this land is stolen land. We pay respects to Wurundjeri Elders, past, present and emerging, to the Elders from other communities and to any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders who might encounter or participate in the program.
