Gender Reassignment

Gender Reassignment 

I have been looking at gender equality. The idea of gender binaries can trap and ostracize people who may not fit perfectly within their borders. I have been creating portraits of people as their opposite gender and also took this further by having four of us go out for a night out dressed as men. I did this in the hope for us all to see a new perspective through different eyes. I created a short film on how the night went and how the girls involved felt after doing it too. Through researching feminist art for my dissertation, i feel my work is became heavily influenced by feminism. By doing this, I feel my work can strongly show that feminists are not man haters like they are stereotyped to be but show the thin line between people’s gender and how insignificant it really is.
