Deborah White Trixie TrikstaOpening: Tuesday 6 February, 6-8pm Dates: 6-24 February 2007
“As a mature woman, who does not adhere to the traditional virgin-wife-mother trilogy, the defining labels abound. Particularly irksome was being called a ‘f…king old bag’ by a stranger in the street”
White plays with the horror of the feminine, mocking the irrational fears of a culture that maintains the ideal of a youthful and ‘civilised’ body. Disconnecting from an embodied reality, the adventuresome Trixie embarks on an online voyage in the hope that technology can reshape more than just our bodies, but our ideas of identity as well.
