Marie Theresa Crick is a PhD researcher in the Visual Cultures department at Goldsmiths University of London, and a fellow of Advanced Practices PhD. She is an artist, a core member of the Counterfield Collective and curates her own creative practice in photography, film and facilitating spaces with researchers, students and communities to think with contemporary art, creative writing, poetry, photography and film.

Marie Theresa’s research thinks with transnational feminisims and queer reorientations through rereading Luce Irigaray’s shared air as it converses with her filmic bodies and embodied practice.

Her research seeks a reorientation of conditions of Irish Catholic maternal migration of the silent displacement of women from the Republic of Ireland to London in the 1950s, due to premarital pregnancies. Aiming to position a ‘Feminine-to-Come’, a radical within but ‘not yet’, to offer potentials to reorientate what was transmitted by this migration of another register.  Thinking with the states of bodily, spatial temporal and relational unsettledness of the Irish Catholic maternal, seeking a collective re-moving with the mother and daughter relation.

As part of Counterfield she has co-facilitated one workshop with Daphna Westerman and Jiaying Gao as part of series five: Activating Indeterminate Encounters and another ‘Feminine-to-come’, and the Poetics of Filmic Breath with researcher Sara Simić. Marie Theresa’s embodied research and movement workshops have taken place in the Ocean as Archive module on the MA in Contemporary Art Theory, BA Feminist and Queer Technoscience Module and Graduate Diploma Workshop LAB - Histories of Art Module.

Marie Theresa has over eighteen years of experience in creative spaces, predominantly in education, including schools in Surrey and London and Whitechapel Gallery, Zoo Art Fair and Sebastian and Barquet. She has activated ‘Thinking With’ online spaces to collectively think with different art spaces, such as Manifesta 14, documenta 15 and many others. She also takes part in spaces such as the Birkbeck London Critical Theory Summer School, Architectural Summer Schools, School of Materialist Research ('The Feminine in an Age of Anthropological Transformation') and Birkbeck Guilt Group.
