Xx TABLETS xX offers a representation of a societal need to cure that which is not hegemonically correct in gender binaries.
Acting as a depiction of the struggles faced by those who engage with non-conforming gender profiles, this fashion film exposes both vulnerability and power in relation to a preferred notion of the masculine form. The characters dictate both an authentic performance of identity, and one which is constructed as an idealised male form. Set in an archaic building reminiscent of a hospital, stylistic elements including colour, lighting and clothing contribute to the narrative’s jarring realisation of our times.
With the fear of one’s appearance being rejected by society, Xx TABLETS xX shines light on feminine masculinity through a clinical scenario which regards gender norms as fixed and unrelenting.
