Q–Self in community, in connection with else.

Sam Huxtable’s work takes shape through a multi-disciplinary practice, including digital media, sculptural/ installation and performance work. Recently they have been exploring use of text in work, and stand alone poetry. They are currently exploring queer existence from both personal and community perspectives, and their experiences around transition, in all senses of the word.

Their recent experiences with HRT (testosterone) are a major guide for their current work.

My pronouns are they/them/theirs.

I acknowledge that the lands on which I work and live are rightfully those of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation. I pay my respect to elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has never been ceded.

This always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
