£1 FISH

'We're all born naked and the rest is Drag. I'll say it again, it's never been the clothes that make the man' 

- Rupaul, 2014

‘£1 Fish’ is a durational installation exploring Connor's own mental health journey, self medication, and how Drag has helped him through his issues surrounding gender and identity by being an escape from reality. He angrily crushes paracetamol until it’s dust, as many stories are told by Drag performers and Drag lovers about their own struggles as well as his own. And of course no Drag performance is complete without our Lord and Saviour RuPaul Andre Charles making a cameo.
