Statement

I use video and performance to discuss trauma, both cultural and personal, appearing as my drag persona, MAUVE. My multimedia work involves blurring the lines between the false binaries of truth and illusion, humour and seriousness, and masculine and feminine. I want my art to occupy an in-between space much like I occupy in my everyday life as a non-binary person. Although drag is often assumed to be an art form based on performing a gendered-illusion, I’m interested in how I can use drag to process my true experiences of alienation and trauma that that I live as a queer person in society.
