My technique is my own

Christopher Sciuto
Mira Oosterweghel

06 February 2015–28 February 2015

My Technique Is My Own responds to the notion that ‘contemporary art finds its power in the ability to link, connect and make patterns visible’, seeking to expose how behavioural codes and patterns of power within our external environments affect our bodies and gestures. My Technique Is My Own utilises the performative body in conjunction with sculptural apparatuses, to evoke both power and play, seeking to draw attention to how our behaviour is constrained and designed by our cultures and environments.

See all projects by:


  • Christopher Sciuto is a mixed-media visual artist whose work engages with contemporary cultural and social issues; in particular polarised subcultures and issues of sexuality. These ideas are presented in installations that incorporate found objects or images, placing emphasis on the surface and texture of his chosen materials.
  • Mira Oosterweghel is an artist living and working in Melbourne, she graduated from Monash University with First Class Honours in 2013. Mira has exhibited her work in various artist run initiatives and festivals employing research methods to investigate structures of power in connection with the body in space. Mira utilizes the body in performative ways to question and engage with systems of power.
