Zoë Bastin (b. 1992) is an artist, curator, sometimes writer and self-described rat-bag. As an artist who makes performances, sculptures, videos, photos and runs a radio show she’s fascinated by the porousness of the body, where it starts and ends and how culture inscribes ideas of gender and sexuality onto our physical form.
Bastin recently completed her PhD at RMIT University, where she was researching gender by transforming patriarchal hierarchies in bodies and objects. Bastin has previously exhibited and performed at Bus Projects, The Substation, Wyndham City Council, SEVENTH Gallery, MADA Gallery at Monash University, Testing Grounds, School of Art Gallery RMIT University, Tinning St Presents, c3 Gallery and BLINDSIDE.
I acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of the land and waters where I live and work the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nations. I pay my respects to elders both past, present and emerging and acknowledge that sovereignty on this land was never ceded. Always was and always will be Aboriginal Land.
