Ayakamay (b. 1985) is a Japanese-American artist living and working in New York. Her practice encompasses photography, video, and performance art. Her adolescence in a cross cultural environment strongly influenced her art. GENDERLESS is a series of self-portraits by Ayakamay. Using herself as a subject, the artist attempts to reveal complex relationships between gender and self by questioning social signifiers and cultural coding.

Live performance by Ayakamay at the opening reception, and also there is a live performance on each day during the show period.
