"We Get It, You Shaved Your Head Because You're a Feminist!!!!"

Dig Devine - November 2016


To dismantle the gender roles that pre-package all individuals, it is necessary to challenge sexism and the gender binary. This steel coffin, shaving performace is a personal response to the position of hair visibility and style within the gender binary. Hair is often performed to emphasize an identity, and in this case, gender identity. The removal of all hair serves as temporary death of gender in order to rise from conditioned and comfortable gender performance rituals as a (then defining) cis, queer female.
