About the work

‘Not all of us can say, with any degree of certainty, that we have always been human, or that we are only that.’ – Rosi Bradiotti, The Posthuman

This drawing is part of a series which considers the construction of monstrosity as a means of upholding notions of the Human as always white, male, European, well-educated, and able-bodied. The works are an attempt to reclaim the monstrous as a potential site for joy/sexy times/aspiration/beauty.

About the artist:

Born 1988 Ireland, Rebecca Jagoe lives and works in Wales.

Their practice encompasses performance, sculpture, textiles, writing, and drawing. Their work is a material memoir which examines how their own experiences of illness and gender, have been informed by specific Western cultural narratives. In particular, their work explores how within European culture, the Feminine is constructed at the meeting point of medical rhetoric and the aesthetics of mainstream fashion. Their writing has been published by Hotel magazine (forthcoming), the Happy Hypocrite (Issue 11), and Frieze magazine, among others.

Selected exhibitions and performances include Digital Realness, Site Gallery, Sheffield (2021); Shiten Mouth Ful of Tordes, Wysing, Cambridge (2020); I fantasize a springtime and cry, La Casa Encendida, Madrid (2020); AS IF, performance at CCA Goldsmiths, London (2020); Florilege, Jupiter Woods, London (2019); performance at South London Gallery (2019); and performance at Whitechapel Gallery, London (2018).

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
