About

Transgender artist Cassils is renowned for a rigorous engagement with the body as a form of social sculpture. Their work juxtaposes the immediacy, urgency and ephemerality of live performance against constructed acts for camera.

Becoming an Image is a piece that works at the intersection of performance, photography and sculpture. Originally conceived as a site-specific work for the ONE Archives in Los Angeles, Cassils unleashes an attack on a 2000 pound clay block. Delivering a series of kicks and blows in total darkness, the spectacle is illuminated only by the flash of a photographer, burning the image into the viewer’s retina.

Curated in association with Eugenio Viola, Senior Curator, PICA

Presented in association with Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts
