The SPILL 2014 Thinker-In-Residence is groundbreaking LA based artist Cassils.

The SPILL 2014 Thinker-In-Residence is Heather Cassils – an artist who uses the physical body as sculptural mass with which to rupture societal norms. Drawing on conceptualism, feminism, body art, gay male aesthetics, and Hollywood cinema, Cassils creates a visual language that is at once emotionally striking and conceptually incisive. Recognised by the Huffington Post as one of 50 Transgendered Icons, Cassils’ work has been featured in many museums and galleries around the world, and was a smash hit of SPILL 2013. Read more here.
