Acts of Self Love

Acts of Self Love is an attempt to embody what it means to be unfixed. An attempt to reclaim abandoned parts, an attempt not to hide, an attempt to be visible at all times. It calls into question the everyday compromises we make to fit in, in order to be considered normal. Acts of Self Love is both a playful exercise in performance and a serious exploration into the artist’s own identity. What gives us a sense of our gendered self? What gives us a sense of self beyond gender? What selves arise out of an attempt to transcend gender norms?
