Justin Shoulder is an artist working in performance, sculpture, video and nightlife/community events production. His main body of work Phasmahammer is an ecology of alter personas based on queered ancestral myth. These creatures are embodied through hand crafted costumes and prosthesis and animated by their own gestural languages. Shoulder uses his body and craft to forge connections between queer, migrant, spiritual and intercultural experiences.

He is a founding member of queer artist collective The Glitter Militia and Club Ate, a gang of Asia-pacific sissies. He has performed and exhibited internationally, recent highlights in 2017 include: the video body of work Ex Nilalang for AsiaTOPA by Club Ate, First Sight at Museum Macan, Jakarta and the premiere of his feature length theatre work Carrion for Liveworks, Performance Space Sydney.
