The Expo

Besides a book, an educational program and multiple documentaries, the main element of the #MYOWNGENDER project is a travelling, 5 by 2,5-meter art installation fusing photography with audio, video, and written word. A unity showcasing all the nuances of gender.

Models who identify as fluid within the spectrum of gender are captured on black glass through collodion wet-plating and share their story in a short interview. No matter what their pronoun may be. No matter old or young. No matter background or religion. All become an element within a circular construction that encloses every passerby with their story. The viewer becomes the viewed – even if it’s just for a second.
