TAG is a series of photographic portraits by Ming de Nasty of LGBTQ+ women in Birmingham that reflects how they self identify and the impact of labels on their everyday lives.
The artist asserts that “in a world that requires so many labels individuals are trying their best to be true to themselves in a society that often wants to restrain and normalise. This exhibition highlights the difference amongst individuals and the extent to which their self-definitions are at odds with cis heteronormative expectations.”
“I wanted to explore the debate around identity and make portraits that showed people as unique individuals, to give the participants a space to tell their own stories and expose shared experiences.”
TAG uses a mobile exhibition structure designed by Juneau Projects that will tour to various venues after its first showing at SHOUT Festival in 2018.
