About this product
- DescriptionResponding to work by Eve Sedgwick and recent media attention to queer suicide, this project theorizes performative melancholia, a condition where, regardless of sexual orientation, overinvestment in gender rms causes subjects who are unable to embody those rms to experience socially expected ('rmal') gender as something unattainable or lost. This perceived loss causes an ambivalence within the subject that can lead to self-inflicted violence (masochism, suicide) or violence toward others (sadism, murder).
