Jamie Macdonald 

April, 2016

Rather than paint, clay or a camera, sometimes the creative medium is the artist’s own body and core identity. In this installation, performance artist Jamie MacDonald shares photographs, legal paperwork and personal objects to document his ongoing process of re-designing, re-shaping and re-inventing himself as he transitions from female to male.

MacDonald writes:

“The forces that continue to sculpt my life encounter each other in this installation: identity meets legality, sexual meets mechanical, and medical meets the curation of the self-image.”
