Sam Huxtable is a non-binary/trans, queer artist working on Whadjuk Noongar land. Their work explores the queer body and psyche, navigating the unresolved, expansive notion of existence from a queer perspective- an existence that resides in constant flux- alongside the experience of others in their communities. Sam’s performance practice incorporates sculptural, digital and installation elements to reflect form and experience so precious, and so complex.
Trans experiences often revolve around altering our bodies to reflect our identities- for expression, alignment, and often for safety. Using found and alternative objects to represent and build alternative bodies, Sam is interested in jewellery and other adornments as tools for body alternative- building a protective layer of metal around their body daily- they aim to explore this further in their practice.
