Justin Shoulder is an interdisciplinary artist who creates and disseminates contemporary mythologies. These stories are realised in the construction of full-body, highly sculptural avatars that Shoulder calls Fantastic Creatures. Each avatar possesses its own gestural physicality and movement language, which is expressed in live performance, video and photographic works.
Shoulder also produces work with performance collective The Glitter Militia: a Sydney gang of cabaret, drag, mime, clowning, circus and strip-show artists. Established in 2004, THE GLITTER MILITIA produce bent performance work, parties, ﬁlms, exhibitions andimmersive theatrical experiences in warehouses, nightclubs, at festivals and in theatre spaces throughout Sydney.
