Earth is a Deadname, Lou Lou Sainsbury

HUMBER STREET GALLERY, 64 Humber Street, HU1 1TU

14 Dec 2022 - 26 Mar 2023

Based on a series of “trans-for-trans” writing workshops that have taken place in Spring 2022, Earth is a Deadname is the first solo exhibition by Margate-based artist Lou Lou Sainsbury, installed first at Gasworks, London (July 2022) and then at Humber Street Gallery, Hull.

Identifying as a time traveller, Sainsbury works across film and performance, poetry and textiles. Her work unwrites and rewrites the natural history of living beings, inviting the viewer to delve into alternate mythologies informed by queer and ecological activisms. Sainsbury’s performances and films result from long-term research developed through collective study and collaborative processes.

For her first institutional solo exhibition, she presents a newly commissioned body of work that seeks to reimagine transgender experience beyond the limiting language of medical terms.
