SUWANNA RIANGMAI
"Transgender "
April 12-23, 2015



Transgender is the state of one's gender identity or gender expression not matching one's assigned sex, which does not mean one’s sexuality or sexual orientation. Gender is another dimension of culture. Therefore, the understanding of gender is the door to understand human relationship that uses “gender” as a tool for social organization. Behaviors, values, and beliefs regarding gender in each society greatly affect and define how people express their own identities and uniqueness, as well as how people react differently to genders.

The differences definitions of gender also show the differences between “behaviors” and “sexual activities”. Sexual identities and gender roles are concrete concepts that can be clearly seen in every day’s life, on which normally involve biological sex; for example, love-making is an action while gender expression – whether as a man, a woman, or a transgender – is a matter of gender as defined by the society. However, there is still another dimension to the word gender – the abstract term. It is the matter of mind and thought. This dimension is known as sexuality – meaning sexual interest and attraction for another person; sometimes referring to sexual orientation or sexual ideology.
A sexual attraction between members of the same sex or gender is called homosexuality; between persons of opposite sex or gender is called heterosexuality; while toward both males and females is called bisexuality.

Though in the present, the viewpoint toward the transgender in general has positively changed on which the society has accepted the variety of genders more. However, the life conduct of transgender is still unequally treated in various aspects which can be seen many times in the media.

Classic nude photography of transgender models in black and white

Woman Touch, Olga Volodina's first exhibition in Bangkok, was a simple yet exciting way to express the beauty of a nude female body through the medium of black and white photography. MTF exhibition is a kind of sequence project that utilize the same aesthetic of sensual mood to show transgender bodies as an art object.

In the civilized modern world, a choice of sexual orientation is the right of every human. People learn how to live among the variety of opinions, attitudes and sexual preferences.
In general we have to learn tolerance.

As long as transgenders have been existing artists and
photographers mostly use this phenomenon in art to provoke or shock their audience with documental realism often
underlined with some strong social meanings.

Photographer Olga Volodina chose another way.
She prefered the style of classic black & white nude
photography that doesn’t attract with its play of colors and devoid of any social context . Here attention to composition, lighting and the beauty of a not-so-obvious-yet human body is more important. There are just calm and sensual nude
pictures shot the same way as classic nude female
photography. It lets a viewer to keep attention undistracted and see the beauty of a transgender body the same way as a male or female naked body.

Each body of work deals with a different aspect of night life ranging from images of lonesome beggars on a moonlit street to restless party-goers caught in a candid moment. The night time photographic pieces are inspired by urban life, exploring the diversity of human activity and inactivity that occurs in the night. A myriad of human emotions are captured by these skilled artists. Color and light are also major driving forces in their works.

Renowned Bangkok artist and designer P7 has also created an exclusive painting for this exhibition under the night life theme.
