Post Performance of Becoming an Image, a collaborative diptych (London), 2013

Description


Ronald Feldman Fine Arts is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of artist Heather Cassils. Utilizing a combination of rigorous physical training, knowledge of kinesiology, and sports science, Cassils uses her body as a sculptural mass, manipulating it into forms that question our society’s gendered norms and expectations. Opposing the notion that in order to be officially transgendered one has to have surgery or take hormones, Cassils performs Trans not as a crossing from one sex to another, but rather as a continual process that exists in a space of indeterminacy. Forging her body in various ways for different performative purposes, Cassils constructs a visual critique and discourse around gender ideologies and histories.
