Past Small Grants Recipients

TLeigh’s World Vision

Teague Leigh is an autistic trans man from planets unknown, currently residing in Naarm. Once upon a time he was anthologised in various works and performed his spoken words around the country. In 2012 Teague developed a cognitive disability, schizophrenia and was also diagnosed with autism. As words became harder to obtain, Teague substituted writing for photography, something he had not pursued for decades, when he learnt to develop his analog images in darkrooms. Now Teague is letting his landscape images speak for him.

Teague’s small grant will help to fund his upcoming exhibition, The Reclamation of Terra, at Sol Gallery. The exhibition, including a public launch, will comprise a body of photography Teague has been developing since August 2022, recently showed as part of the Yarra Sculpture Gallery’s Summer Residency program through Arts Access Victoria. As a person living with autism, Teague finds exhibitions featuring his current work are a safe opportunity to voice his emotions regarding his social and political intent and helps him to feel a part of his communities.
