Embroidered (Un)Defining Queer jumper from artist Sarah-Joy Ford featuring, her Lycaon design.
Sarah-Joy Ford’s jumper is a reclamation of the queer werewolf from heteronormativity. The design of Lycaon, which is taken from the Whitworth’s historic art collection, depicts a trans-species body in constant flux. A body that refuses to accept society’s gender and sexuality norms.
This piece is designed for the Queering the Whitworth exhibition, (Un)Defining Queer.
