#Rebel Selves

#Rebel Selves explores creative methods that could be used to critique and subvert idealised heteronormative gender expectations in selfies and portraiture through ideas of entanglement, camouflage and parade. The project comprises an installation, self-portraits, collaborative contemporary dance performances and videos, online and IRL workshops and a smartphone app, all of which create performative spaces in which visitors can create queer(ed) selfies that rebel against gender and beauty norms. In a series of IRL workshops, play with gestures wearing installation costumes (top) or make masks (middle) and use them to take selfies in the installation. I also ran online workshops that use a specially developed smartphone app and filters that blend and distort selfies inspired by the installation (bottom). Images were shared on @rebelselves instagram page.
