Shedding

11 minute performance | 2017

Shedding is a performance which explores the act of becoming as a reductive process, as well as the illegibility of the transgender body. Through a series of movements, I remove the organza garment printed with an image of my pre-surgery form, and conduct a reverent funerary process for this second skin. When wearing this transparent garment, there is a schism between the printed image and my physical form.
