About this submission

While grappling with lifelong questions about my own relationship to gender, I reached out to a diverse group of people to write me about their relationship to "womanhood." Their responses were the catalyst for MOUTH. I wanted to use the aesthetics of the uncanny and the grotesque to interrogate the ways in which the specter of binary gender quite literally haunts both those within it and outside of it, dissecting and confronting the violence perpetrated against femmes in our society as well as the ways in which the label of “feminine” has forced them to shrink themselves.
