(Anecdotes of Androgyny)

The book Andrew has his period. (Anecdotes of Androgyny) reflects through text and images on the multi faceted nature of the 9 month performance ‘i am becoming’. This is part of Andrew. The book concerns itself both with the project and with questioning the limitations of expressing an experience. Playing with the notion of the anecdote as an incomplete and whimsical means of expression. aay liparoto


I learnt that the fat in my ass, breasts and hips would drop away, that the bones in my face would thicken, that I would grow more hair on my face, chest, abdomen, and back. My clitoris would enlarge. I learnt I would not grow a penis. I learnt what would happen to my body if I took testosterone.

I am re-imagining my sense of self around the premise ‘What if 26 years ago they had said “it’s a boy” How would I be living differently. How would I interact with the world. How would the world validate me.’ In the assumption of a male identity I am not only questioning how I would fulfil life as a boy, but also how the reality of living as a male influences how I feel in the here and now.What does it mean as a designated, biological female to ‘become a man’. To appropriate the identity of another gender whilst remaining physically of female delineation. What does it mean to live out the expected gender norms of natal men. What is it to be gendered?
