Join artist Lou Lou Sainsbury from 6-7:30pm as she discusses her latest body of work for Humber Street Gallery, Earth is a Deadname.
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 medicalisation, rewriting its histories into a cosmic poetics of trans sensuality, relation and desire.
