At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.
We are open today from 10am to 5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.
An Illustrated Lecture with Justin Shoulder
Justin Shoulder is an artist working in performance, sculpture, video and nightlife/community events production. His main body of work Phasmahammer is an ecology of alter personas based on queered ancestral myth. These creatures are embodied through hand crafted costumes and prosthesis and animated by their own gestural languages. Shoulder uses his body and craft to forge connections between queer, migrant, spiritual and intercultural experiences.
He is a founding member of queer artist collective The Glitter Militia and Club Ate, a gang of Asia-pacific sissies. Justin Shoulder is part of HyperPrometheus at PICA and will be performing Carrion: Episode I at Connections Nightclub on 7 – 8 December.
To learn more about Justin Shoulder’s practice, you are invited to attend an intimate Illustrated Lecture.
