WYNNE NEILLY: FEMALE TO "MALE"
July 23 – August 24, 2014
Student Gallery, Ryerson Image Centre

Female to “Male” is a self-portrait project documenting the artist’s transition from female to “male” through weekly photographs, recorded vocal changes, documents and objects that represent a segment or moment in his gender exploration. The project offers an intimate view into the physical, psychological, medical and financial changes Neilly has undergone to shape and explore his gender. He insists on the use of quotation marks around the word “male” stating that his identity is something fluid that cannot be easily defined by use of a single word. For him, his gender and body are a construction of the ways in which he perceives himself and the queer social experiences he has lived. Neilly maintains that his trans identity is not a shift from one sex or gender to another, but rather a continual evolution.
