RESEARCH QUESTION: What can auto-ethnography and the concepts of Agar Agar and hybridity contribute to a contemporary art practice? ABSTRACT: The purpose of this research is to explore the ideas of Agar Agar and cultural hybridity within a practice-based and auto-ethnographic approach in contemporary art. Painting and artistic practice provide me with the means to work through and understand experiences of fluidity, difference and cultural identity within the context of New Zealand. The project and resulting body of creative work provide an answer to the question: What can auto-ethnography and the concepts of Agar Agar and hybridity contribute to a contemporary painting practice.
