Gender In Wonderland: Zackary Drucker And Rhys Ernst On The Art And Play Of Gender In Relationship And She Gone Rogue

Friday, October 31, 2014 - 9:22am

Zackary Drucker and Rhys Ernst are contemporary artists who have come to international attention for the intimate and diaristic recording of their relationship as a transgender couple transitioning in opposite directions (Ernst becoming male from female, and Drucker female from male). Their acts of self-fashioning entail shifting subjectivities and identities, playing both subject and object in their creative negotiation and collaborations. In Drucker’s words, “Our bodies are a microcosm of the greater external world as it shifts to a more polymorphous spectrum of sexuality. We are all collectively morphing and transforming together, and this is just one story of an opposite-oriented transgender couple living in Los Angeles, the land of industrialized fantasy.” The artists were recently featured in the Whitney Biennial, New York, 2014.
