MASCuerade

 

Lucas Morneau

April 21st  - May 26th 

“Beneath this mask, another mask. I will never be finished removing all these faces”

– Claude Cahun, 1930

Through the use of crocheted masks and photography, Mascuerade explores gender

performativity and the masquerade gender non-conforming people face due to Western

societies strict gender binary. Each mask depicts a label that queer and gender nonconforming

people are confronted with due to their refusal to conform to societal

pressures. Through these masks, Mascuerade aims to deconstruct the xenophobia

surrounding queer and gender non-conforming people, as well as aims to dismantle the

negative labels that society has attached to them.

Mascuerade is a series of seven self-portrait photographic diptychs exploring gender

performativity, social conformity, and the labelling of those who choose not to conform to

Western societies established gender roles.
