Henry Wolff’s practice is concerned with images that articulate vulnerability in their participation with the world/s of their collaborators. Through moving image, photography, and performance they explore phenomenon of the betwixt, and what is held between gestural utterances. Transformation as a methodology, creates a dialogue within their work across action and documentation, enabling Wolff to draw out nuanced musings on queer agency and gender non-conformity.
