Corey Hayman is an emerging artist born in 1990 currently studing her MA at Goldsmiths University. Lives and works in London.
Hayman’s work centres around racial and social identity, with its exploration and realisation covering a wide-range of media, from photography and video, to documentation and drawing. Her work is borne out of primary experiences with found materials/subject matter in discourses surrounding class, race, gender and the envelopment of these factors in socio-political, economic and cultural experiences. Particular discourses of interest to her include; Afro-pessimism, Glissant’s right to ‘Opacity’ and Crenshaw’s intersectionality (the matrix of co-dependent oppressive categories; race, class, gender and the socio-political effect of these ‘intersections’).
