CV

My artistic practices are rooted in the investigation and reflection on a heterogeneous class of phenomena apropos of deviant sex/gender/sexuality, through the prism of trans scholarship, utilising various production modes including writing, photography, film, performance to manifest the antagonistic position towards hegemonic societal discourse and knowledge production.

My primary research areas are trans and queer studies, feminist philosophy, social and political philosophy, with a particular emphasis on the intersection between them and their entanglement and imbrication with language, visual culture and socio-cultural transformation.

我是跨兒(trans)/性別酷兒(genderqueer)/非二元者(non-binary),使用代詞「they/them」,可暫時翻譯成「TA」或者「祂」。我清楚代詞這概念本身所隱含固有的性別二元性,在有更好的系統性改變出來前,也可以完全不使用代詞稱呼我,這也包括你平常交流中對我的提及,又或者是你現在在閱讀時不斷對我進行的性別化。
