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 allways understand them as politically relevant.
I am intersex
Since 2000 I have been also an intersex activist – out of the necessity and in addition to creating art that relates to the larger questions that arise when dealing with human rights violations and cultural erasure and stigmatisation of people who are born with variations of sex characteristics.
