Archie Barry is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Melbourne, Australia. Barry’s practice centres around investigating embodiment as a highly politicised and complex phenomenon.

Their working position considers our current post-identity-politics media landscape as continually rehashing binarised strings of reasoning, focusing largely on the Western two-gender system as a manifest example of a culturally ratified and deeply entrenched “either/or” mentality and power structure that forecloses a myriad of experiences in the realms of gender and sexuality.

By curating ontological spaces between what is and what can be, Barry’s work aims towards envisaging alternate possibilities for ever-evolving architectures of personhood.
