Transitional States: Hormones at the Crossroads of Art and Science private viewing and reception 6-8pm. All Welcome!

What effect do hormone uses have on emotions, sensations, sexual expression and desire? This video art exhibition presents the work of 14 artists and collectives who explore the immense role hormones have on our everyday life. The works raise crucial questions about how society influences and regulates gender identity, and capture broader explorations of sexuality and gender fluidity. The featured artists take viewers on sometimes intensely personal journeys and demonstrate the liberation they have experienced through the use of hormones. Other works look at the medicalisation of women’s bodies in relation to birth control, menopause and ageing, and offer an important commentary on how we use hormones to improve and sometimes constrain our lives in ways we rarely consider.

Artists, performers, writers and activists have employed various techniques to produce these works, including 3D animation, stop motion, and infrared video, and use a range of formats such as performance for the camera, music video, documentary, TV show and online feeds.

An international jury selected participants following a world-wide open call and the exhibition features 15 established and emerging artists from countries including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Denmark, Brazil, Columbia, France, Italy, Sweden, UK, Uruguay and the USA.

Transitional States has been developed and is led by Dr Chiara Beccalossi (University of Lincoln) with support from the Wellcome Trust. The video art exhibition is curated by Giulia Casalini and Diana Georgiou (Arts Feminism Queer).

The exhibition will be shown at the Peltz Gallery following a four-week season at Project Space Plus Gallery in Lincoln, before continuing to Europe, where it will be hosted at CCCB (Centre Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona) in Barcelona, Spain and in Bologna, Italy.
