Digital Collage Print on Brushed Aluminium with galvanised steel gate hinge posts inc 8 screws
53 x 40 x 0.1cm
Edition of 5, signed and numbered on reverse

Dykegeist sharp and fine. is a series of 2 limited edition digital collage prints on metal that live in conjunction with choreographic performance work Dykegeist, commissioned and presented live at ICA during September 2021. 

As an extension of the performance, Dykegeist sharp and fine. is interested in complicating the archetypal narratives assigned to the lesbian predator creature and pushes in response to the lack of areas for queer intimate encounters outside of the cis-male ‘underground'. Gate hinge hooks prop the fine aluminium sheet, a gate being a symbol of hope within a vigorous fanatical search for temporary seclusion.


Eve Stainton is an artist interested in the politics of uncodeable queer presence and its intersections with race and class. They create multi-disciplinary performance worlds that hold movement practices, digital collage, and welded steel, and other invisible forces like waves, imagination and drama. These forms work together to create live ecologies that are discordant, multi-layered and psychedelic. Stainton is interested in the production of conflicting states and textures to unravel essentialist thinking, with intent to create more expansive understandings of the lesbian identity, non-gender/variance, and perceptions of the ‘real’.
