Manchester Trans Exhibition and other things

Manchester Trans Exhibition and other things

I know it’s been an unfeasibly long time since my last post, for which I make zero apologies. It’s partly because I’ve not had a proper computer (and updating the site on a phone is a bloody nightmare) and partly just because I’ve been focusing on making things rather than promoting them (as well as working non-art jobs).

But now there are exciting things that I need to tell you all about.

Firstly I am part of an exhibition at the People’s History Museum in Manchester called ‘Continuum: Framing Trans Lives in 21st Century Britain‘. It is an exhibition of around 15 trans and non binary artists from across the UK which will be running until the start of september, and is organised by Artmob, a new collective supporting and promoting trans artists. I have done some sculptural pieces based on my Man Cunt paintings, but they have sprouted animal body parts like mythical chimeric beasts. I haven’t had a chance to see the work up as I couldn’t make the opening last week, but I’m going to be heading down there this weekend for a Meet The Artists event, where you’ll be able to hear me along with other trans artists talking about our work.

Secondly, I have been making music over the last few months – I used to make ridiculous 80’s eight bit style music years ago, and I decided to get back into it. It’s still pretty much entirely electronic, but it’s a very different sound, and I have been working with my friend Marcus of Theskyisthinaspaperhere, and he’s been mixing and producing it and generally making it sound awesome. I have my first performance in just a few weeks at Queer Spirit festival which I am very excited about. Tickets are only available until tomorrow (Friday the 30th), so be quick!2016logo-fb
