One in every 2,000 babies is born intersex – and it's thought that doctors continue to operate on these newborns to 'assign' gender.
Enter XXXora,a hermaphrodite artist with an impassioned campaign and an extraordinary life XXXora, a 33-year-old artist who lives in south London, has a way with words.
"My work is very much influenced by my life and this unresolved issue." She has committed herself to creating a series of all of nature's hermaphrodites for the rest of her life. She adds that all of her work, which embodies self- portraiture and optical illusions, is akin to a personal handprint.
"I predominantly work with optical illusions, as in many respects I was born an optical illusion."Self-taught, XXXora has always made art. XXXora breeds them and one picture from a series called "The Crying Alchemists", which focuses on the type of horses she breeds, was recently sold for £15,000.
On top of that, XXXora is launching her Silver Box exhibition at the Groucho Club in central London in May.
Xxxora has previously given her support to a campaign led by a group of intersex women.
Now, however, she has launched her own Silver Bo(x) Campaign, petitioning the UK Government to recognise those born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that does not fit the typical definitions of female or male, and to stop such infants undergoing non-consensual and irreversible surgery to "fix" their sex.
It is believed to be the first series of pieces exploring the role of the hermaphrodite in nature.
She will also be holding a regular film exhibition on the same theme at the Cinema Museum in south London from next month and will feature in an exhibition called Art for Youth at the Royal Academy of Arts in October. Rebecca Wilson, chief curator and director of artist development for the Saatchi Art website, on which XXXora is featured, says that her "works are arresting, challenging and have an urgency to them which is very powerful"."Art is a megaphone and a loudspeaker," says XXXora, explaining how it is critical to her campaigns.Androgyny is considered fashion, but it's not considered a genetic reality.
