P. Staff (born in Bognor Regis, United Kingdom; lives in Los Angeles, United States, and in London, United Kingdom) explores the invasive presence of discipline, violence, and work in the definition of trans*, non-binary, and queer identities. Their projects, often collaborative, combine performance, installation, and video to make perceptible how history, technology, capitalism and the law have fundamentally transformed the contemporary social constitution of bodies.
“Trans*” is an umbrella term for the different gender identities and expressions that a person might have, other than those defined by social and medical norms. The asterisk is used to encompass all of these identities within a single term so that they don’t all have to be listed (Conseil québécois LGBT).
