Drawing on multiple reference points including 1970’s countercultures, New Age practices and complexities of post-modern spirituality, Inner workout is an installation that offers a space for intuition, rituals and meditation. This installation examines metaphysical and cultural esoterica of the recent past, ‘New Age’ spirituality and recent renewed interest towards self-help and therapeutic culture. This installation uses strategies of appropriation, hybridity and nomadic meanings that are contingent and subject to the contemporary dilemma of spirituality.

Min Wong is a sculpture and installation artist who is currently completing her MFA at UNSW Art and Design. Min has participated in international residencies in Spain, China and Los Angeles and recently exhibited at: Housemuseum Galleries, Melbourne; Newcastle Regional Gallery; Verge Gallery, Sydney; Hugo Michelle Gallery, Adelaide; and Firstdraft, Sydney. Min has exhibited in prizes such as Churchie Emerging Art Prize and the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize and in 2019 was the recipient of the Sculpture prize for the Ghost Fisher Art Award Prize.
