February 27 - February 28, 2016, 12 - 6pm
Transfigure is a project of corporal self-expression, presented as an experimental, visual feast. It’s a celebration of bodies that transcend the gender binary. As a transgender man I created the project as a step in my own self-acceptance and to promote positive body image in the Trans Community.
During the installation, which includes the book, life-size photographs, a film, and interactive website, attendees are encouraged to reconfigure the physical book, play on the website, and communicate online using the Transfigure Website Community Forum Page to engage with people outside the walls of the gallery.
This project began with the concept of a traditional children’s flipbook, made up of transgender bodies, and created to explore our bodies in a safe and playful way.
Opening Reception: February 26, 6 - 8 pm
Prince St. Project Space
