Redefining Difference


The topics in my work stem from my personal experiences as an intersex person. Both the history of otherness and political activism inform my practice. Mutants, Monsters, Freaks and Misfits are incorporating the fears of a norm-constrained culture and represent the boundaries of the acceptable - reflecting the face of the regulators who made them. The expansive visual and conceptual material of transgression becomes part of my vocabulary and meets the agendas and ideas of social and queer politics and human rights issues. The interconnection of scale variations of the small sized works and their clustering within the wall filling drawing respond to my expectation of reading apparently personal or private issues within a social context and thus to always understand them as politically relevant.
