SUMMARY: I'm interested in the impact of the digital upon the physical - in terms of the body, objects, sense of self, sense of place, sense of past, present & future. I explore this through photography, music, curatorial, selling and participatory projects and performance - online and offline. Click HERE for a 10 minute video intro of my work by Oona Friedrichs and Julian Beyer.

#Sergina meets Katherine von Bora
In May my mother Anne Boileau and I met in our respective drags and tried to have a conversation about prayer, posing, horse shit and trans historical travel. Work in progress.

TWO MAJOR ONGOING PROJECTS:

1. THE GEORGE RICHMOND PORTRAIT PROJECT

Tracing portraits by my great great great grandfather George Richmond RA (1809-1896) to private homes - and to the same families that commissioned them - in order to photograph both the portraits and their current owners in situ. I am also conducting audio interviews with the people I am meeting, both about the portraits and the people in them. Themes: #Inheritance #Portraiture #VictorianEra #Family #BritishSociety

2. #SERGINA - online/offline musical drag performances about the negotiation between the physical & digital body, explored via music, video and live performances. #Sergina performs both alone and with other bodies, often simultaneously in different places, linked up over Google Hangout and live broadcast via YouTube - and also music videos. For most of what #Sergina does, collaboration is key. Themes: #Identity #Drag #Simultaneity #OnlineOffline #PhysicalDigital
