Imogen-Blue Hinojosa, “The Loving Smears”, performance

25 November 2023, 19:00


The Loving Smears is a body essay that reconstructs the artist's gender transition over a span of seven years. The work moves elliptically through medical interventions and trans experiences, reflecting on  sexuality, assault, motherhood, illness, loss and love. Utilizing an autoethnographic approach to art making, this work re-presents the artist's body as saturated with social politics, desire and sexuality, violence and resilience, and invites viewers into a vulnerable here and now, in which surfeits of memory, trauma, and desire meld together.
