"Blood bowl" 2017

 

“Blood Bowl" is a durational, 40 minute interactive performance in which the artist offers a vessel of wine to those in the audience who identify with the experience of female-ness or femininity.

It critiques the assumption of the symbol of blood as historically masculine, and celebrates the symbol's imbedded femininity.

"Is This the end-o?", 2017

"Is This The End-o?" is a larger-than-life ceramic self portrait which depicts the experience of endometriosis within gender-queer bodies.
The portrait addresses the failure of the artist's female sexual organs, and questions the legitimacy of the artist's intimate attachment to femininity within their gender identity.

"Plato's Symposium #1", 2017
 

"Plato's Symposium #1" is a drawn self portrait relating to the "The Myth of Aristophanes", a narrative of Plato's Symposium that paints the original human form as two bodies connected by a spherical centre. The myth imagines three human sexes through this image: male/male; male/female; and female/female, that were smite in half and separated due to their threat to Zeus' power. It has become a symbolic origin of both the gender-queer experience, and the concept of soulmates.

"Plato's Symposium #1 articulates the artist's experience with gender, as well as her experience with a partner- in both instances focusing on the intimacy of sharing of feminine and masculine identities. It stems from a larger body of research on early concepts of gender outside of the binary gender pedagogy.
