MADE IN COLLABORATION WITH MARY BRYSON
Resisterectomy is a 4-part multi-media moving image, picture and text installation that challenges the boundaries of a gendered body through the examination and infiltration of, in and on various medical procedures and spaces. The project juxtaposes the narrative of trans sex reassignment surgeries with the narrative of cancer surgeries – mastectomy and hysterectomy – the same surgeries, organized in relation to very different modes of telling, showing and embodiment.
