Clementine Morrigan (aka Violet Seawitch aka Jason Star) is a gender/queer femme sober-addict witch. They are a multidisciplinary writer and artist. Their work spans genres and mediums, including essays, poetry, creative non-fiction, zines, illustration, short film, self-portraiture and sculpture. They are also a facilitator and community organizer. Their first book, Rupture, was published in 2012. They produced a short film entitled Resurrection in 2013. They write a zine called seawitch and also work on other zine projects.
Their creative and academic work is interested in counter-narratives of gendered violence, art as a space of invaluable knowledge production, femme as sacred, critiquing intoxication culture, complicating constructions of addiction and considering sexuality (in particular queerness, sex work and polyamory) in conjunction with madness. Their academic work takes seriously the art produced by trauma survivors and considers its social, political, aesthetic and epistemological value. Their facilitation and community organizing is collaborative and disability justice focused, creating intentionally anti-oppressive, accessible spaces in which to share art, stories and ideas. Their work takes a bottom-up approach, undermining the authority of meaning-makers such as medicine, psychiatry, law and academia.
