By Mog&Mog (Kate Fennell & Alexandra Edmondon)
Booby Dinosaur is a playful exploration of female sexual identity. The image confounds identity and defies it, refusing to fit neatly in a box. In a broader sense Booby Dinosaur is a celebration of sexual and gender fluidity and the spectrum of queer experience. As artists who choose to embrace fluidity, rather than trying to fit the constructs of identity, the image speaks to us in a way that isn’t easily defined but is powerful all the same.
