“An Untitled Installation” 2019

Stevan Lukic

With over half a tonne of wet terracotta clay, ‘An Untitled Installation’ became what was to be a journey of self exploration in discovering stereotypical viewpoints on masculinity and what it is to “be a man.” Through tireless and methodical process, it was to be a labour like no other.

Each penis hand made through intuition by myself the artist. I believe that through the act of repetitive process, more and more can be revealed about concepts and preconceived beliefs held both personally, and within society. Having come from a rather conventional background, and being both white and heterosexual, the experience for me became more than just a humorous exploration of my own obsession with the phallus.

‘An Untitled Installation’ , aims to dispel regimented viewpoints on toxic masculinity through its use of humour and visual disarray. As a leading contributor to domestic violence, violence towards women, violence towards those within the LGBTQI community, rape culture, murder and suicide within men and a precipitator towards alcohol and drug abuse, I feel that toxic masculinity poses itself as one of the largest threats to community at the present time. This installation is intended to create a space for dialogue and reflection.
