Simon the Last’s work is principally interested in the themes of legacy and memory; how they define the material world around us, shape the stories that we tell ourselves, and intersect with the queer experience. This often includes explorations of social justice and class consciousness.
The artist’s current practice evolved from a decade-long practice as both theatre director and filmmaker. As a result, Simon the Last’s work is often theatrical in nature - taking the form of an installation or an immersive experience - aimed at consciousness raising and agitating against hegemonic systems. It is important that the work is as accessible as possible.
