Through collaboratively constructed macro photographs, this exhibition explores the relationship between gender and fat through fashion. Borrowing from performance theory, this project considers embodied performances, including, but not limited to, gender as simultaneously agentic and constrained. This exhibition is the culmination of a comprehensive research project involving 15 participants from diverse backgrounds representing their lived experience with dress, identity, gender, and size.
