Jason and the Birth of Laurie Joe

Davidmann, Sara (2010) Jason and the Birth of Laurie Joe. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Davidmann, Sara

Despite academic research disputing the assumption that sex and gender are limited to the binary female/male categories (Butler 1990, 1993, 2004; Herdt 1996; Kessler and McKenna 2000) there continues to be a widely-held belief in the two-sexes/two-genders system (Hines 2010; Roen 2010). This series of photographs constitutes an intervention into assumptions of essentialism, biology, and gender. In contrast to the previous work, it takes a new position by demonstrating through visual means that the supposed “natural” order and primacy of the two-sexes/two-genders system can be disrupted through the act of procreation.

This series was produced as part of an AHRC Fellowship in the Creative and Performing Arts, LCC 2007 - 2010.
