About Karike Ashworth

Dr Karike Ashworth is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist-researcher-teacher living and working in Meanjin (Brisbane). Her experimental research practice consists of performance, time-based media, objects and installations. Her practice is informed by a feminist epistemological approach; in that she views the world through a woman’s perspective—always; and uses her practice to build knowledge and understanding of how patriarchal structures like gendered expectations control and contain women.


Content Warning

Educators are advised that one of Ashworth's works in the exhibition,No.More.Nails (2024) carries a content warning for partial nudity and sexual references with viewer discretion advised. Please contact if you require any further information.
