Gender identity has been a recent topic of debate within the West; many individuals, celebrities and young people are rejecting the understanding of gender as a binary structure. I also consider myself a part of a genderqueer community, not identifying as either male or female. A more fluid identity is adopted, using both feminine and masculine signifiers to build my own identity.

GenderFuck is a collection of images that centre around Saint Sebastian as a current homo-erotic icon. This work is an exploration into a hypothesis that suggests that the gender binary is enforced in the West, as a heavily Christian teaching.

Using both ‘male’ and ‘female’ visual language and signifiers, this body of work creates a dynamic which can leave a viewer questioning the identification of the person in the images.
