EJ Son is a multi-disciplinary artist, working across new-media, sculptural installations, videos 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 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, was nominated for FBi’s Best Artist SMAC awards in 2021, was awarded as the winner of the 2020 Emerging Artist prize from the Gosford Regional Art gallery and was commissioned by Murray Art Museum Albury to make titty tower (2021) to exhibit for SIMMER 2021. In 2022, they are to show at Bus Projects in Melbourne, Cool Change contemporary in Perth, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and The Lock up in Newcastle.
