We are delighted to welcome Zoë Bastin to our new Artistic Program Advisory Committee. Zoë is an artist, sometimes writer and self-described ‘rat bag’. Bastin works in-between dance and sculpture creating choreography, objects, videos, essays and performances. Since childhood she’s been fascinated by gender roles in dance class; particularly who’s allowed to do what and why. Currently undertaking her PhD at RMIT University, she researches gender by transforming patriarchal hierarchies in bodies and objects. Bastin hosts Queer(y)ing Creative Practice live on Bus radio, performs often and is currently working with a team of eight dancers on an immersive performance called That Which Was Once Familiar. Bastin has previously exhibited and performed at The Substation, Kings ARI, Block Projects, Paradise Hills Gallery, 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.
