Area of expertise

Patricia is a filmmaker and researcher. Her art documentaries offer a means of re-imagining narratives that have been constructed around a patriarchal or colonial lens. She endeavours to offer an alternative means of facilitating marginalised and oppressed voices.

Patricia's current  research areas speaks to the politics of ‘voice’ as both an aural and material representation of the subjective self; and in exploring how documentary making tools can be used, non-conventionally, in her endeavour to create an audio-visual language that articulates the visualisation of the silenced women’s voices. 

Patricia's interest is in correcting the exclusion of the plurality of women’s voices and an absence of their equal presence within a social, political and economic sphere.
