This project is a collaboration between Lex Titterington, a non-binary performance artist, and myself. Lex has been awarded funding from the Arts Council for a project on gender, body, trauma, and healing. In 2013, I became aware that I have a transgender daughter, who is now in a relationship with a non-binary partner, so I have had a long-standing interest in gender, where I have worked with the transgender community.
The project explores themes around gender, body, and processing trauma, focusing on Lex’s lived experiences. The images are a portrayal of their struggles as well as ways of coping and healing.
All articles, including masks, the wooden spine and the puppet, have been created by Lex.
