Genderpoo has grown from a bathroom sign to an installation to a series of t-shirts you can wear /// Genderpoo ha crecido desde un signo del cuarto de baño, a una instalación a una serie de camisetas.
Long time ago I started making bathroom signs that visibilize identities, communities, people, situations, that are silenced by the oppressive society we live in. I called this project Genderpoo and I’ve been showing it for years in galleries, schools, museums, friends’ bathrooms.
Now, thanks to Sevilla-based urban art project INDISORDER, Genderpoo has become wearable art! There are 4 models (chosen among the more than 80 different genderpoo signs) and all the t-shirts are numerated. It’s a limited edition! Gets yours here!
Hace tiempo empecé a crear signos del cuarto de baño que visibilizasen identidades, comunidades, experiencias que nuestra sociedad opresiva se empeña en querer callar. Llamé a ese proyecto Genderpoo y lo he estado exponiendo como una instalación en galerias, escuelas, museos y en en los baños de las casas de muchos amig*s.
Ahora, gracias al trabajo del proyecto de arte urbano INDISORDER basado en Sevilla, Genderpoo se ha convertido en una serie de camisetas. De momento hay 4 modelos (elegidos entre los más de 80 signos diferentes) y todas las camisetas están numeradas ya que es una serie limitada. Consigue la tuya aquí!
