Trans-Meat (2014) is a collaboration exploring the artistic unity of photography and performance. Sam Brown, an American expressionist, and I questioned the performativity of gender in Quito, Ecuador. Departing from 11 local feminine archetypes, we spawned fictions in quotidian spaces of women of all walks of life. A hair salon, a market and a sex motel transform into empowering landscapes of popular culture capable of redrawing femininity. We negotiated access into personal spaces and memories. We navigated socially uncomfortable situations. Meat, as a counterpoint, allowed us to explore the narratives born upon women’s very own bodily flesh.
