Impossible Dance (iv) - Matto Lucas

A new outdoor exhibition at The Substation Billboard Gallery

Featuring a collection of black and white photographs, the Impossible Dance (iv) by Matto Lucas images celebrate, canonise and represent queer communities in a pre-COVID world of nightlife, art and entertainment.

The spaces and bodies captured within Impossible Dance (iv) represent constructs of utopias and frame the body as a communal, yet autonomous object.

As a photographer, Matto Lucas interrogates systems of power, concerns himself with GASD (Gender and Sexually Diverse) and LGBTIQ+ identities, and aims to authentically document communities on the fringes of mainstream culture.

Titled after an influential essay written by Fiona Buckland, Impossible Dance (iv) is the fourth iteration in a broader series of performance-based photography.
