TITAN ARUM : Justin Shoulder
"AEON†: TITAN ARUM is a camp celebration of floral splendour, and a very queer reimagining of the botanical order. It encourages us to consider alternative worlds, and to celebrate the truly weird and wondrous one we already inhabit."
The Review Board
Witness elaborate craft meet uncanny puppetry and the language of diasporic queer clubland. In a series of appearances throughout the installation, Shoulder inhabits these forms in a sensory ceremony of dance, light and sound before disappearing again into nature. Suitable for all ages.
Presented by Newcastle Art Gallery.
