As a Performer and Artist, I always work straight from the body – finding expression through movement and physicality.
The body for me is a beautiful plain canvas that we can use clothes, objects, paint etc to express the individual and I believe the body should be celebrated more in its purest form (nude). I do not see myself as either ‘male’ or ‘female’ but a constant mixed and fluctuating expression of what people traditionally identify with this binary, blurring the line between being feminine and masculine and questioning those terms on a daily.
I also do not see why we should limit ourselves to a particular sense of style or label when it’s a lot more fun to play or express yourself through different gendered clothes creating an androgynous aesthetic.
This, however, shouldn’t be confused with my sex or genitalia – I love genitalia. There are great pleasure and Liberation in being confident in your self and your genitalia. We all have them.
