Drag Venn Fed (2017)

Glittered wooden hoops, plastic coated fabric, false nipple, sound. 4cm x135cm x90cm

 

Drag Venn Fed continues Clements’ experimentations that display or voice disparate information as if connected – in this case how we are fed information regarding gender, sexuality and relationships from an early age; specifically concentrating on a mixture of truths, falsities and the ways in which we make connections based on this information to form personal Venn diagrams of understanding.

A hidden speaker whispers worn phrases, familiar descriptions and disconcerting messages. The sound can only be experienced by placing an ear close to the center of the piece – through the false transvestites nipple.
