Parma Ham (they/them) is an artist, curator, musician, and DJ based in London. Since 2015 they have been a producer with the Serpentine Galleries.
Ham is represented by Anti Clone Gallery under the pseudonym Nullo, their silicone based work takes the form of design objects that intersect organic forms with the manmade. Nullo launched in 2019 via a runway show with a collection of surreal sex toys and fetishwear based on transhuman bodily augmentation and mutation, the project has since manifested through VR, performance, and sculpture. Ham’s performances activate their design work, through narratives that storytell local folklore and esotericism, via outsider queer aesthetics. Their work has been commissioned or programmed by Comme Des Garçon, Dover Street Market London and Paris, Soho House, Silencio, Burberry, and more.
In 2019 Ham founded the Wraith event and its sibling magazine Inertia, that platforms ritual as performance, music, and posthuman fashion. As a DJ Ham is a proponent of dark hardcore and has notably played at Memento Mori (New York), Soft Leather (LA), TechNoire (Paris), Ritual (Rome), Subverted (Berlin). They have also supported Boy George, Nitzer Ebb, and Marc Almond; as well as scoring the music for the Comme Des Garcons Fall runway show in Paris.
Ham came to worldwide attention for their extreme style, with videos of their huge hair styles racking up a viral 70 million views. They regularly commentate on subculture, censorship, and gender non conformity.
