Cheap Tongue. Fremantle. 2023

A multi-medium arts exhibition created by Artist Tim Meakins and Producer Ryan Sandilands. SPORTS DREAMS plays with the youthful notion of growing up and fantasising about being a sporting star, and though an ambitious dream, we all have these dreams or our own version of it. The dreams traverse both digital and ‘real’ realities, with alterations and changes as they are produced, and re-produced in different spaces — just like that of real mascots; they're not born, they're created, they adapt — and they don’t play by our rules. Collaborations with Elly Sumner, Remington Matters, Lo-Fi, Good Company Records, Tim Fitzgerald, Ethan De Lacy, James Caswell, Caitlin McFeat, Isaac Diamond, Arrigo Brackenridge, e-Plume , Nora Zion, Guy Contact, Eilish Campbell, Visaya Hoffie, Edwin Sitt, Bradley Pinkerton, Joe’s Printing, Case Frames, Patrick O’Brien and Terry Meakins.

Liftlore (Folklore)
Goolagatup Heathcote. Perth. 2023

Liftlore (Folklore) is an exhibition by Tim Meakins which satirically explores the folklore allegories surrounding one of the world’s most famous prehistoric sites, Stonehenge. Liftlore playfully re-tells the mythical legends of Merlin and the giants, following the timeline of Stonehenge creation, with tongue in cheek reflections on current day gym-lore (fitness culture). This project has been supported by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.

Muscle Beach
AGWA – Art Gallery of WA. Perth. 2021/22

Muscle Beach is a solo exhibition occupying AGWA’s new interior rooftop gallery, these figures offer a playful take on the culture of self-preening and physical development. They embody the lengths we go to in meeting improbable ideals, while also honouring the expressive capacity of cartoons and digital media to imagine strange new entities we might become. Without a trace of moralism, Muscle Beach is about the pleasure and problematics of holding an idea of who we are, and are yet to be, in one and the same thought, in one and the same flex.
