EJ Son is a multi-disciplinary artist, working across new media, sculptural installations, video and ceramics. With a focus on provocation and humour as a device to interrogate the complexity of power in the construction of gender, sexuality and race. Their practice is often paradoxical, arousing the tension created by our subconscious tendencies to binaries; they aim to deconstruct and create space for new feelings to be considered.

They completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) at Sydney College of the Arts in 2018 and are a recent recipient of the Parramatta Artists’ Studios on-site residency at the Powerhouse Museum. They were awarded the 2020 Emerging Artist Prize from the Gosford Regional Art Gallery, and commissioned in 2021 by MAMA Albury to make titty tower (2021), to be presented for SIMMER 2021. They have exhibited at the 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, Bus Projects, Cool Change Contemporary, Verge Gallery, PARI and will be showing at the OZAsia Festival x LEXUS gallery, The Lock-up and The Substation in 2022.
