“When ‘gender’ is questioned, the answer is not at all straightforward. We are usually faced with opposing opinions surrounding the biological hypothesises and the social constructions we associate with it. In some cases, gender is argued to be derived from biological and reproductive characteristics of sex; from the hormonal, chromosomal and physical differences.
Testosterone is an alleged denominator separating male from female, thus, solidifying our preconceived ideas on gendered behaviour and stereotyping.
With that, my work aims to question the idea of gender as fluid through the documenting of a single boy, Jayden, found within different narratives to raise the questions surrounding our perceptions on gender through visual storytelling and thus, combining the dialogue between gender as a biological aspect and that of its embodying social constructs.”
