Listed by the Huffington Post as “one of 10 transgender artists who are changing the landscape of contemporary art,” Cassils has achieved international recognition for a rigorous engagement with the body as a form of social sculpture. Featuring a series of bodies transformed by strict physical training regimes, Cassils’ artworks offer shared experiences for contemplating histories of violence, representation, struggle, and survival. Drawing on conceptualism, feminism, body art, and gay male aesthetics, Cassils creates a visual critique around ideologies and histories with sweat, blood, and sinew.
