Man's Body Woman's Work


For Man's Body Woman's Work, I knit myself a flesh-like body suit, while in the nude, over the course of a full work week (Monday through Friday, 9 to 5). Here, I employ my identity as a male-bodied, genderqueer person, engaged in an activity historically associated with woman's work. This queering of gendered notions of work seeks to deconstruct deeply engrained, binary, cultural assumptions of work and gender.
