Artist & Events Producer
Justin Shoulder is an artist working in performance, sculpture, video and nightlife/community events production. His main body of work the ‘Fantastic Creatures’ are invented alter-personas based on queered ancestral mythologies. 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 has performed and exhibited internationally, recent highlights include: The River Eats at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, Ex Nilalang for APT8 at QAG/GOMA 2015-16, Brisbane and the annual costume ball he co-produces Monsta Gras at the Red Rattler.
