Jamie Crewe is an artist and singer whose videos, texts, sculptures and drawings often draw upon historic sources – novels, films, myths and music – as material. These reference points have in the past included American artist James Bidgood, best known for his extravagant gay drama Pink Narcissus (1971); French author Rachilde’s Monsieur Vénus (1884) which describes the relationship between an aristocratic masculine woman and a working class boy who becomes her mistress; the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, and other ancient myths that still speak to a contemporary trans experience. Crewe approaches these from a transfeminine position that is, at times, deeply personal, tracing, adapting and mis-adapting these diverse sources in order to uproot and disrupt.
