Pop-Up: Dirty Words

'Dirty Words' explores the power of linguistics within culture, and speaks specifically of the experience of gender. Show runs Friday, January 25 - 28th from 6-8pm

Melbourne-based artist Sunny Short employs their own body along with phrases and words that are often cutting and confronting. The artist challenges the viewer to consider the slippery nature of language, as words are isolated, repeated and subverted, becoming visceral and personal. These words imply intimate meanings, and the body becomes a political device.

Sunny Short’s practice is informed by their genderqueer identity. Dirty words gleaned from the artist’s experiences simultaneously reference the self and comment on language within wider cultural contexts.
