ineffable is a literature & arts magazine that seeks to rouse and relish in the “unspeakable”: the erotic voice, the spiritual fever, the fiercely beautiful. We seek to provide established and up-and-coming artists with a medium for representation, displaying earnest work and creativity while withholding nothing. ineffable is an experiment in open identity and self-expression.

Megan K. Quigley is an emerging artist and aspiring curator learning and practicing in the Lekwungen Territories (Victoria, British Columbia). Megan has lived and worked on Lekwungen homelands for seven years, having come from Istanbul, Turkey. Megan holds a BA from the University of Victoria in Gender Studies and Literature, specializing in Multi-Racial and Indigenous Feminisms and critical theory. She is currently pursuing a diploma in Visual Arts at Camosun College. Megan's art practice engages with multidisciplinary approaches to form and meaning, working with craft practices in textile, ceramics, and photography, as well as performance art and new media. Megan is particularly interested in the tensions between the sacred and the archive, as a means of interrogating realities of inheritance in the contexts of neocolonialsm.

 

In her intimate and grainy photos, Megan attempts to capture "the intangible, the inbetween, the almost." As such, she sees the ineffable as "a space for liminal bodies, where the in-between is sacred and fleeting. This series of black and white photographic work therefore explores relationships between stillness and spirit, with the voyeur being positioned to become attentive to a fickle beauty. The series focuses on mundane scenes with a latent charge; a docile spirituality. Through relationships of domesticity and the feral, the 'liminal' works towards an unsettling, but all the more discreet, sense of the sensual."
