'Getting into her habit/Practice-to-Practice': An emulative exploration of Teresian language

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference Paper

Abstract

My paper today traces the methodological rationale for my research into the 16th century Christian mystic St Teresa of Avila and the function of language within her mysticism. The practice-led research seeks to develop a new, closer reading of her mystical writings through emulation of her mystical praxis from the perspective of my practice as a visual artist; in order to uncover and map how her ecstatic mystical experiences functioned in relation to language, I attempt to approach her texts in a similar manner to that in which she approached the Divine through Scripture.
