Research Themes

Jan's research area crosses over several of the University's research themes.  As a practicing artist her research is aligned with Creativity, Culture and Society. Her research focus is on developing a visual language that allows a cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary dialogue about the land on terms of equality and acceptance of difference. Her research analyses how attitudes to the environment can be shifted to become aware of the vibrancy of matter and sensitive to non-human and multivalent understandings of Place. Since arriving in Tasmania her research has broadened to include Antarctica and how this significant site can be understood through a multi-disciplinary approach. She is currently involved in cross-disciplinary research between Science and the Arts into how the unknown can be visualised.

Collaboration

Jan has been involved in several national and international collaborations. She is currently involved in a cross disciplinary project called Oceans of the Unknown, a collaboration between Dr Vanessa Lucieer, Marine Spatial Analyst, Ecology and Biodiversity Program IMAS, Dr Jan Hogan, Studio Coordinator, Printmaking, School of Creative Arts and Media and artist and PhD candidate, Annalise Rees, School of Creative Arts and Media. The research will culminate with two refereed journal articles for publication, the completion of the book Visual Soundings for publication, public lectures and the presentation of an exhibition of creative works in the IMAS Gallery space. The multimodal format of this collaboration offers an exciting and innovative partnership for the generation of new approaches to thinking about the dynamics between traditional and non-traditional research outputs and how the disciplines of art and science can effectively and cooperatively communicate ideas to audiences.

Spaces of connection was a research collaboration between 4 Australian artists with different cultural backgrounds.  Over two years from 2012 -2014, a collaboration through practice-led research explored the interconnectedness between Indigenous and non-Indigenous relationships to land, place and each other. The research culminated in an exhibition at the South Australian School of Arts Gallery, an artist's talk and a blog. Researchers: Imiyari Yilpi Adamson, Elizabeth Hetzel, Jan Hogan, Jessica Sanguesa. Whilst employed at the Charles Darwin University in the Northern Territory Jan initiated, managed and completed the Australasian Print Project, which was an international cross-cultural dialogue between artists from Arnhem Land, the Philippines, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia. The concept was to use the medium of printmaking as a common tool for dialogue. This research culminated in exhibitions, conference papers and a catalogue.

Current projects

The Stone Dialogues: Practice-led research into the materiality and presence of the rocks at the base of Mt Wellington that were used for the building of Hobart. The research will culminate in an exhibition of prints at Nomad Gallery in Darwin. The research engages with an emerging trend in New Materialisms that deals with issues of materiality, embodiment and subjectivity.

Oceans of the Unknown: An interdisciplinary research project exploring how science and the visual arts both utilise the image as a means of producing, analysing and disseminating information explaining our complex relationship to the world. The image becomes an abstraction of data, re-presenting and translating ideas linking the material and immaterial, seen and unseen.

Transversing Truganini Track: materiality and sensation in drawing the land. Through process-led research she will examine the site of Truganini Track, named in memory of a Nuenonne woman, contentiously called the last Aboriginal Tasmanian. Her research explores the importance of touch in the gaining and depiction of knowledge about the land. She proposes that depictions of the land developed from 'the haptic' in contrast to 'the gaze' communicate knowledge of the environment in terms of sensation.

Projects

Engaging Communities in Nature Conservation through Aesthetics and Art (2018)$13,742
Description
The project aims to improve academic knowledge and practical knowhow in developing a richer and moresocially inclusive framework for engaging communities in nature conservation through aesthetics, includingthe arts, and thereby to generate recommendations for nongovernmental organisations and governmentpolicymakers working on environmental issues. This will be achieved through a community workshop, fieldCALHothouseResearchEnhancementProgramEOI2017Page5of12trip to a nature reserve, engagement with stakeholders especially school teachers, and scholarlypublications.Aesthetics is vital for engaging communities in their natural environments because it can generate anemotional and cultural commitment in a way that science and economics cannot easily solicit. However, theappeal to environmental aesthetics has tended to exalt landscapes that are pristine, without people, andto use imagery or messages that appeal primarily to specific socio-economic groups (eg, the well educated,affluent, and urban) while of less relevance to others, such as poorer, rural populations, disaffected youth,and sometimes Aboriginal communities.Because Australian society is deeply divided in how it values landscapes, we urgently need a moreinclusive and varied approach to reading aesthetic values in the environment (eg spiritual and historicvalues, and recreational benefits, in addition to ecological values). If environmental law and policy, and thepractices of environmental organisations, are to achieve broader community support, a more sophisticatedframework for assessing aesthetic values is needed to underpin environmental decisions.The project (in the UTAS-funded phase) collaborates closely with the Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC),the leading private land conserver in the state, to investigate how these challenges can be met through acase study of its Five Rivers Reserve in the central highlands. A community workshop and site-visit overtwo-days will involve academics, artists and local stakeholders to identify and evaluate a process forunderstanding environmental aesthetics, and to extrapolate how this can inform the work of organisationssuch as the TLC and government regulators such as the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Waterand Environment (DPIPWE).Thereafter, the project with external funding would be scaled up to include additional community-focusedcase studies in Tasmania and one mainland state, and partnering with a community nature conservationorganisation in that mainland state in order to develop a more comprehensive framework of relevance toother stakeholders across Australia.

Research Supervision

Her supervisions focus on practice–led research in the Creative Arts. Research interests are focused on understandings of Place through the Visual Arts with a specialist interest in Drawing and Printmaking.  Research investigations encompass sensitivity and awareness of other cultures and ways of being in the land.  Many of the supervisions are site-specific examinations or challenge notions of belonging in Place.  She has an interest in Asian and Pacific visual art traditions and would welcome researchers in this area.  She currently supervise artists from China and Korea whose work explores contemporary innovation on tradition.
