Justin Shoulder is an artist working in performance, sculpture, video and nightlife/community events production. He was born on the un-ceded lands of the Gadigal people (Sydney) and is of Filipino and European heritage. 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 with partner and key collaborator Matthew Stegh and Club Ate with collaborator Bhenji Ra.
