According to the artists:

This solemn ritual presents variety of genders and describes FtM (Female to Male) transition.

It’s a gynandroid performance where the transition process is intermingled with poetry. Sex is represented as skin, female, male. Gender is represented in the sense of self, of man, and of woman. A journey, a crossing, a transition. Naked bodies lined up slowly coming closer. Each individual has a story. They are holding hands. Changing sex is painful like birth. The golden masks on their faces are not to hide their identities: In fact as they come closer it is possible to distinguish their genders: a biological man, a trans man, a trans woman, a biological woman. From the bottom of the stage, a female creature unfolds from behind a black towel and goes to stand behind them: she walks across touching the bodies, one after the other. The pain is tiring, the flesh a substance to be shaped. The solemn rite of dressing up – in trousers, jacket and tie: it’s the return to the opposite. For a transsexual changing sex is not becoming a man but a return to being a man. There is no need to wear the masks anymore: the self is revealed.

About the Artists:

[Excerpted and translated from the artists’ Human Installations website]

KYRAHM is one of the key figures of live art in Italy. A conceptual artist, a video artist, a body artist, and an  international performer,  Kyrahm’s performances are built upon the powerful emotional impact that comes from knowing that everything that has been represented within her work is real. Kyrahm creates innovative concepts and works within the fields of media communications and contemporary art.

JULIUS KAISER is an Italian video maker, performance artist, and Drag King performer. Kaiser’s artistic research starts with experiments and performances that explore gendered social roles, putting forth a fluid vision of gendered embodiment(s) that is coherent with contemporary queer theory. Kaiser’s collaboration with Kyrahm has contributed an artistic element to Kaiser’s explorations, giving rise to the experimental Human Installations that have garnered them their international recognition.

Together, they perform both in the underground and mainstream Italian art scenes, which include museums, art galleries, and international art festivals.

Margaret Robinson’s “Two-Spirited Sexuality and White Universality”

This week on the Queer Ontario Think Tank, we have Margaret Robinson’s “Two-Spirited Sexuality and White Universality,” an essay that frames two-spirited identity not as a First Nations term for LGBTQ, but rather as a series of distinct sexual systems that challenge the universal truth claims of White sexual identity systems. It was originally published in the Journal of Postcolonial Networks, at http://postcolonialnetworks.com/2012/06/02/two-spirited.

Margaret Robinson holds a PhD in theology from the University of St. Michael’s College and is a researcher with the Re:searching for LGBTQ Health team at the Centre for Addiction and Mental health in Toronto. She is a General Editor with the Journal of Postcolonial Networks

anna anthropy’s “Dys4ia”

.
Says anna about the project:

Dys4ia is an autobiographical game about the period in my life when i started hormone replacement therapy. It’s a story about me, and is certainly not meant to represent the experience of every trans person.
