The Mighty

25th May 2019

Perth Institute of Contemporary Art

The Mighty is a counterculture exploration of feminism, race and humanity. Explored within electric vignettes, this show is often fiery, occasionally lyrical and sometimes soft.


What do a straight black man and a (then) gay white woman share in common? How do we see each other, and ourselves as we are? What is oppression? What is the cost of privilege? These are some of the questions that we run into as we talk about race, sexuality and feminism. 


While we rile against the systems of power and oppressions that limit all people, we come face to face not only with the way we perceive and judge each other, but also how we perceive ourselves. This work explores being flawed and human while demanding radical change from society and how it judges us. We offer radical love as a way of moving through the world. We have been deeply inspired by the following quote from the Aboriginal activists group, Queensland 1970, via Lilla Watson


“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
