SAT 12 JUNE 4PM BST
Female subjectivities as well as nature are seen as wild and irrational under patriarchy, and thus have been subjugated and ‘tamed’ throughout his-tory. Despite efforts to wash this off, its traces are always left behind.
Niya B engages with her own internalised toxicity and the elements of water and air in a ritual of shedding skin and letting go. During the outdoor performance Niya will create an ephemeral installation.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Niya B is a transfeminist artist, working at the intersections of visual art and performance to explore themes related to ecology, posthumanism, (trans)gender politics and equity in mental health. She uses video, soundscapes, text and live acts to create a meditative space of vulnerability, affect and interdependence.
