Artist Statement

Kaitlyn Tiffany (b. 1999) is a Virginiabased multimedia artist. Through experimental videos, GIFs, and webbased performance art, Tiffany’s work explores the gender spectrum, Gen Z nihilism, and queerness. Their experimental videos muse off of the gender binary and the limitations of this gender dichotomy, the expectations put uponthe objectified feminine body, both historically and in contemporary society, as well as telling stories from their perspective as a gender nonconforming individual. Works such as SelfMade Man(2020) are made specifically through an autobiographical lens; however, their work typically focuses on their lived experiences, regardless of genre or medium. Their latest project, The Lady Killer Motel(2021),isa critique of homophobiaand queer representation in film, while also exploring the technical staples of the horror genre and its connection to violence against women in today’s media. Growing up inthe early 2000s, bound by the hierarchal of male validation and the restrictions placed upon female sexuality, Tiffany lived in the shadow of the predatory male gaze in a culture of heteronormativity.In a post9/11 world with one “onceinalifetime tragedy” after the next, their workreflects the cynicismthat can be felt widespread across their generation.
