Maps carve borders through landscapes. Clothes are maps for the body. Both are arbitrary constructs, omnipresent in our society, and have real impact on people.

Mapping Gender is a multisensory exhibition of dance, image, scent, sound and research. It’s an invitation to eplore the parallels between cartography and historical clothing through a lens of non-binary experiences.  

Created by Anders Duckworth in collaboration with sound artist Kat Austen, Mapping Gender looks at landscape, the way we draw borders and create boundaries on maps to carve up geographical space whilst also asking us to explore how we look at the body and how we use gender to carve and divide people. 


Created in collaboration with 9 interdisciplinary artists and a group of trans / non-binary volunteers, Mapping Gender includes a selections from a series of recorded interviews from non-binary people discussing their personal experiences. By drawing together people who exist on the margins and the ‘in-between’ spaces we open up new possibilities and provide an opportunity to re-discover the place and complexities we find in gender.
