Major survey exhibition of international transgender visual artist, CASSILS, and performance installation debut at HOME in Manchester

About

Internationally regarded for their work, Cassils makes their own body the material and protagonist of their work. Working in live performance, sculpture, photography, sound design and film, and referencing conceptualism, feminism, and body art, Cassils powerfully trains their body for different performative purposes, committing to a process of extreme physical and psychological endurance. By positioning their body as a battleground, it is with sweat, blood, and sinew that Cassils shares experiences for contemplating histories of violence, representation, struggle, and survival.

Cassils’ Human Measure, Curated by Bren O’Callaghan, is a 10-year survey at a critical moment for transgender advocacy. The works—which take the form of an exhibition—and accompanying one day performance will grapple with the question:  “What does it mean to engage in the politics of representation in a moment of heightened violence?”.
