Arthur Nyakuengama — Horizontal Discipline Structure 2, 2022



Arthur Nyakuengama (they/them) is a Naarm/Melbourne based artist. Their practice is an exploration of how materials shape us, and how we use them to signal our identities and desires to others. They recently completed their Honours year at the VCA, where they also studied their Bachelor of Fine Arts. Prior to studying art, they trained as a designer which has left them with an unshakable love of grids. They work with material languages of queerness, drawing from homewares, fashion, and kink. Working primarily in textiles, they extract and manipulate potent features from queer dress into art objects which explore and expand upon their origins and functions. Their work has been shown at Trocadero Art Space, the George Patton Gallery, and Incinerator Gallery.
