SOLID

by Casper Plum

25 - 29 January 2022

VENUE

Explosives Factory

Let their bodies speak for themselves.

SOLID is a visually staggering, contemporary image-based ensemble work that investigates masculinity and the body through cis and transmasculine perspectives.

In a society that expects masculinity to be cold, hard, and fixed, lead artist Casper Plum brings us this observation on movement and stillness, sex and gender, as told through queer, trans and cis bodies.

Drawing on their own experiences of masculinity, Plum and his team bring fluidity into the gender binary and expose the limitations of conventional masculinity through interactive installation, visual imagery, self inquiry, and playful cliche.

It will be frisky, sweaty, energetic, dark, robust, confronting and visceral: a deep examination of gender and the pervasive myths that surround it.
