Gymnasia

Sites of Love and Neglect

 

Burnie is a blue-collar town, built upon the toil and sweat of working class industry. But what becomes of such communities when these industries close down and manual labour is no longer required? This work uses the gym as a metaphor to explore the fractured condition of masculinity in this new world.
