Grace Pundyk

Dr. Grace Pundyk is an artist, author, playwright and scholar based in Melbourne, Australia. Her practice – both artistic and research – is interdisciplinary, often journey-inspired, and seeks to blur the boundaries of identity, belonging, death and the beyond.

Grace undertook her doctoral research at the VCA’s Centre for Ideas, The University of Melbourne, and utilised a range of creative and scholarly disciplines to interrogate the intergenerational impact of the ‘unspeakable’ traumas of a past war, and the perceived limitations inherent to ‘writing trauma’.

Publications include The Honey Trail (St. Martin’s Press, 2010), Sons of Sindbad: the photographs (Arabian Publishing, London, 2006), and the play Steppe (a journey of unforgetting) (Australian Plays, 2018).
