Corbin Shaw is a multidisciplinary artist who works mainly with video, sound and sculpture. Shaw’s practice explores the performance of masculinity in heteronormative spaces dominated by men. He examines how public notions of masculinity are shaped and how young men conform and disrupt traditional standards of masculinity.

Shaw is interested in examining the enforcement of gender roles by the father figure and how those roles have developed through the rise and fall of industrial Britain. His practice tries to understand the invisible authority of our peers that tells us we should be conforming to strict rules on what our gender should or should not be. He wants to understand how gender norms become established, how they are policed, and how best to disrupt and overcome them.
