Emilee Guilfoyle is an unsettled queer woman, emerging writer, and theorist-in-training. Her writing practice is rooted in interdisciplinary praxis, where she synthesizes critical thought, art-making and poetry. She was born and resides on Coast Salish Territories, specifically, the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nation, or commonly known as Vancouver, BC. This context has informed her writing practice by investigating non-western epistemologies, and lead to engagement with the intersections of gender, sexuality, race, and cultural theory. Alternatively, her artistic practice consists of exploring the materiality of the land through artistic methodologies. Through using a variety of printmaking and collage techniques, she is involved in the process of repurposing manmade materials to represent something that is visually natural and continually explores the space of capitalist/liberalist construction of the land and ways of knowing.
