I want to engage the audience in questions around different bodies and varying experiences of perception both internally and from the outside. This project plays with the invisibility of things, what we see and don’t see, or perhaps what we show/ don’t show and the discomfort of that. This piece also is an exploration around mental health along with what we define as beautiful or ugly or both.
Trans artist Sonny Bean’s art explores the varying experiences that come with moving through diﬀerent countries, cultures and bodies. Their work explores the stories we hold in our bodies, the stories we are told and not told, and the ones we take on as our own, deconstructing gender, mental health and identity, along with the multiple layers that come with that.
