Sara Davidmann at The Liverpool Museum

Category: Members

From ‘Trans* Portraits’, Sara Davidmann.

 

Sara Davidmann is currently exhibiting two of her projects at the Liverpool Museum.

As part of the un-straight museum conference Sara is showing ‘Ken. To be destroyed’, a personal project that uncovers her uncle Ken’s secret trans* identity. Sara’s family attempted to erase this from their history and as a result Sara’s family photograph albums depict Ken solely as male. This project uses family letters circa 1950, vintage photographs and photographic processes to tell the story that is missing from the family album.

The second project that Sara has been working on with the Liverpool Museum is ‘Trans* Portraits’, to be show as part of the museum’s long-running exhibition ‘April Ashley: Portrait of a Lady’.
