ABOUT EJ SON
EJ Son is a multi-disciplinary artist, working across new media, sculptural installations, video and ceramics. With a focus on provocation and humour as a device to interrogate the complexity of power in the construction of gender, sexuality and race. Their practice is often times paradoxical, arousing the tension that is created by our culture’s tendency to taxonomies, they aim to deconstruct and create space for new feelings to be considered.
They completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (First class Honours) at Sydney College of the Arts in 2018, they are a recent recipient of the Parramatta artist studio’s on-site residency at the Powerhouse Museum, winner of the 2020 Emerging Artist prize from the Gosford Regional Art gallery and was commissioned by MAMA Albury to make titty tower (2021) to exhibit for SIMMER 2021. They have exhibited at the 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, Bus Projects, Cool Change contemporary Verge gallery and PARI and will showing at Firstdraft, Good space gallery, Substation, OZAsia Festival and The Lock-up in 2022.
