ID=Y?

by Jennifer Stokes
Dates
Tuesday 19 June 2012 - Saturday 7 July 2012

The Fantastical Adventures of [Not] Being with You plays with ideas of established gender. Written so that A & B can be either gender, it is only in performance that gender is embodied. It will be accompanied by ID=Y?, a video installation by Jennifer Stokes, which suggests that it is within the performativity of everyday life that a person's gender identity and gender expression reveals itself.

ID=Y? aims to create a real representation of androgynous performativity of women in the UK; reminiscent of the punk DIY film-making of the Riot Grrrl movement. It features self-identified androgynous women that have represented and expressed their gender performativity for camera using a variety of art forms. It also prompts its viewers to question their own understanding and acceptance of the androgynous, gender identities that form part of our society today.
