Courtney May Robertson
In HUNTER, Courtney and her life-sized doppelganger criticize that which is socially indigestible. Every human being consists of flesh and blood, secretes fluids and rots away after dying. This is our biological fact, and by denying this and making it "invisible," talking about it becomes taboo.
Through a queer feminist lens Courtney focuses on the reprehensible, the monstrous / grotesque and film genres in which the body plays a lavish role: horror, pornography and melodrama.
*not for tender souls*
