Holy Mosses: Exploring the Non-Binary Fluidity of Gender
Why We Recommend it
Holy Mosses features works of art that explore the non-binary fluidity of gender from eight artists who identify as female or gender non-binary.
Starring a mix of practices and media, the exhibition Holy Mosses asks a pivotal question: how do we give expression to a world where all genders thrive in freedom? Resisting essentialist narratives, and cultural and biological determinism, this ensemble of artworks explores the non-binary fluidity of gender, its expression across the structureless expanse of organic nature, and its resulting mythological imagination and daydreaming across cultures.
Works featured include Pixi Liao’s “Start your day with a good breakfast together” (featured above), part of a series of photographic self-portraits of Liao and her boyfriend, staging an intimate relationship where gender roles are playful, interchangeable, and negotiable. Another piece featured is Angela Su’s hair embroidery, which narrates a series of medieval French poetry that individually praises and fetishises females’ body organs.
