About

Gender Trouble is Anna Sampson’s first solo show in London, showcasing a collection of new photographs that challenge the notion of gender identity. Shot over the past two years, her images posit a suggestion that true feminism requires real equality - and that there should be no hierarchy between the sexes. By merging and blurring gender clichés and stereotypes, Anna seeks to free gender from its bipolar shackles, supporting Judith Butler’s argument by demonstrating that gender, like sexuality, is fluid and non-binary.

“The heterosexual male gaze has both dominated and defined popular culture for centuries,” says Anna. “Women have always faced - and continue to face - being objectified and commodified by male sexual desire. In this exhibition, I hope to challenge that orthodoxy.”
