The Museum of Transology

ONLINE EXHIBITION, 3RD SEPTEMBER 2021 – 31ST MARCH 2022

The Museum of Transology (MoT) is the UK’s most significant collection of material culture surrounding trans, non-binary and intersex lives. Participants have complete freedom to choose the object they wish to donate to represent their gender experiences. Each object has a brown tag attached to it with a hand-written message explaining its significance.

The collection halts the erasure of trans lives from history, tackles the misrepresentation of trans people in the political sphere, and combats the spectacularization of trans bodies and experiences by the mainstream media.

A SQUARE WORLD

SUNDAY 30TH JANUARY 2022

A Square World is an honest, touching and quirky story of three friends and what happens when an unexpected change leaves one of them left out in the cold. Together they decide to redefine the rules of the square world in which they live and soon discover their lives won’t be square ever again! This non-verbal story uses simple design and object manipulation to create an imaginative world where anything can happen. 

This endearing and funny performance looks at the unfairness of being left out in a world designed for everyone else but yourself.

Adam Summerscales – Human Forest

20 NOVEMBER 2021 – 22 JANUARY 2022

Adam Summerscales is a photographer living in Barnsley. Human Forest is a photography project which documents the artist’s experience of frustration and invisibility whilst moving through the city as a deaf wheelchair user. Using a camera which is mounted from his own perspective, he photographs a visual representation of his lived reality: a forest of arms, torsos and shopping bags.

Though the physical layouts of modern cities are slowly acknowledging the presence of wheelchair users, more often than not urban environments alienate and exclude people with disabilities. Human Forest seeks to highlight these obstacles by presenting the world in an alternative way and challenging able-bodied viewers to think about their own actions in the situations presented.
