Genderqueer, Platan Gallery

Lidia Krawczyk and Wojtek Kubiak deal with the issue of gender identity in a series of photographs and paintings which are in the same vein as the theoretical writing of Cathy Schwichtenberg and Judith Butler.
The images created by the creative duo seek to question mainstream society's single-minded view of what classifies masculine and feminine. The models in the paintings and photographs can at first glance be coded as male or female but at closer inspection, details will reveal themselves - a bit of stubble, long eye-lashes, a strong jaw-line - which will make the viewer second guess themselves.
