In Pursuit of Elvis (Elvis' Favourite Colour was Blue)

In Pursuit of Elvis was a project that took place between 2005 - 2008, investigating Elvis impersonation; becoming Elvis through queer narrative, constructed identities and the pursuit of the unachievable, grief, authenticity and the performative.

In Pursuit of Elvis (Elvis' Favourite Colour was Blue) was an exercise in worship, or looking so intently at something you fail to see what you are doing/producing, creating something subjectively beautiful through a misguided action over and over again, each one different, again and again.
