Hen is an anthropological study on the fluidity of gender, and an exploration into the lasting impact of societal restrictions concerning sexual identity and gender roles have upon us.

About

Day investigates how gender stereotypes have affected the transgender community and ask if the modern day feminist movement has had a resonating impact on how we define gender - and if as a society we should.

Hen translates in Swedish as the gender-neutral personal pronoun, the equivalent to ‘they’ in English. Transgender is an umbrella term and includes those who have transitioned from male to female, female to male and those who identify as non-binary which is explored within the works.

Featuring 30 subjects over the age of forty, Hen tells the personal stories of those within the community, and the common themes of loss and discovery that unite them throughout their journey.

An all-encompassing, empowering study of individuals within a social group on the fringes of society, the exhibition shows both the light-hearted and the disquieting moments they experience.

Hen is sponsored by Chan Photographic Imaging and Old Blue Last beer and has partnered with LGBTQ+ charity Stonewall Housing which is the only provider of specialist housing advice, advocacy and support service for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT+) people of all ages. They work to ensure lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans* people live in safer homes, free from fear, and where the community can celebrate identity and support each other to achieve full potential.
