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.
