About Sadé Mica

My current practice is rooted in exploring the self. The self in relation to gender and performance; how the world around me affects my relationship to my queerness and the body I inhabit. How movement is policed by environment and us and how fraught the control we have over our perception is when thrust outside of solitary environments.

I explore how my body is both freed and restricted, liberating myself and my limbs in the British countryside, posturing against vast landscapes foreign to me, capturing the stillness of my form and thoughtful movements as well as those more chaotic and less considered.

I use textiles to eschew the expectation of stealth bestowed upon trans people and our bodies and embrace unmasking the performative nature of gender, placing the onus upon those who aren’t aware of the sacrifices made to find peace within ones body in the way that we are.
