Who's the Man?

Christine Banquier

Who’s the man? explores the concept of gender roles within queer women’s relationships. The series is inspired by personal experiences, Judith Butler’s idea of gender performativity, and artists including Martha Rosler, Cindy Sherman, and Ana Mendieta.

My hopes for this work are to mock the idea of gender performativity, critiquing the viewer as they are quick to search for the man in a relationship where no man exists. I wanted to explore and display these heteronormative ideologies of gender that society pushes onto queer women and its effects.

Through my work, I hope viewers will critically think about the way they view gender in queer female relationships and how that has been influenced.
