Ryan Allman - Beyond Appearance

Arts Access Victoria presents The Museum of Us

When we all work together, the best possible outcome for humanity will be without limitation.

About the work

The purpose of this artistic piece was to be a work of subtlety.

I find the phrase ‘actions speak louder than words’ to be really captivating, and something I had hoped to emanate through my actions.

I’ve made use of a black/white morph suit to help amplify my physical, non-verbal journey in this particular sequence – a simple and non-complicated form that I could adopt and contrast differing shades of night and day. 

I liked the idea of having opposite ‘spectres’ perform simple mimetic actions of climbing and grabbing, a physical play on the theory of reaching new heights and attaining goals.

The point I try to make here is that every one of us has dreams we’d like to see become a reality and that no kind of ability is exempt from the pursuit of these desires.

When we all work together, the best possible outcome for humanity will be without limitation.
