BRIGiTTE WATKINSON

You  call   me   woman,

but  I   am   not   MAN

You  call   me   human,

but   I  am  not   MAN

You  talk  of  mankind,

but  I  am   not  MAN?

I long for nomansland,

where     we    are    all

dunkwonhami.

"Being post man makes me feel quite smug - we are of a proper gender!

Becoming-together symbiants

When history is made and post humanism is pondered, the status quo for humanity is shifted.

Based on scientific evidence that the first human was female, my speculations around feminist language result in fabulations of past, present and a utopian future. Through time and via a rather imperfect and patriarchal Vitruvian Action Man©, I see humans evolving from the original mother into dunkwonhami, who inhabit the protective landscape of the Cluechenthu.

Anagrams, metaphors, methods and materials twist and turn like a Rubik’s cube, offering and creating new narratives. Gender, language and process intra-act.

Words, images, objects and meanings are made and remade. The recycled, the homemade, the pilfered and the found are constructed and reconstructed; the story unfolded.
