The Tomboy Project

This project is part of my ongoing research and exploration into the concept of ““the tomboy”” and its under-representation, post-adolescence in contemporary art photography, film and popular culture. My research is underpinned by a theoretical investigation of the tomboy image depicted in historical and contemporary cultural narratives, children’’s literature and critical art theory; however I widen the focus to include explorations of the tomboy identity from childhood and adolescence into adulthood and old age.

The project gathered stories for each of these legendary self identified tomboys. I then typed them using an old 1980s typewriter and hung them along with the work, anonymously.
