Club Ate: In Muva We Trust
Over eleven nights, water and bodies will flow across the National Gallery’s facade in a monumental video projection by Club Ate. For the 2020 iteration of the Gallery’s annual Enlighten Illuminations commission, Club Ate have created a video projection that tells stories of resistance, transformation and queer futures. Club Ate is a collective led by Sydneybased interdisciplinary artists Bhenji Ra and Justin Shoulder. Drawing on their shared Filipino-Australian heritage, Ra and Shoulder use performance, costume and video to create work about personal myth and stories of the queer Asia–Pacific diaspora.
