Ken. to be Destroyed free pdf This project began with an archive and a discovery. Sara Davidmann and her siblings inherited letters and photographs belonging to her uncle and aunt, Ken and Hazel Houston, from her mother, Audrey Davidmann. The letters chronicled the relationship between Ken and Hazel. Hazel had been a dental secretary. Ken practiced as an optician in Edinburgh. It emerged soon after they were married that Ken was transgender. In the context of a British marriage in the 1950s, this inevitably profoundly affected both their relationship and their relationships with the people around them. They remained together from 1954 to the end of Ken's life. They had no children. Hazel and Audrey wrote to each other frequently in the late 1950s and early 60s after Hazel discovered that Ken was transgender- these letters tell Ken and Hazel's story. Publicly Ken was a man, but in the privacy of the home he was a woman. In response to the letters and family photographs Sara Davidmann has produced a new set of photographs using analogue, alternative and digital processes. Looking at the vintage photographs she was acutely aware of their surfaces- the marks of time and damage had become part of the images. This led her to work on the surfaces of the photographs she produced using ink, chalks, hand tinting, magic markers and correction fluid. In the series 'The Dress', 'Closer', 'Dealt with in Scotland' and 'Looking for K', Davidmann has created works which interrogate and question the position of art practice within the exploration of archives. From the raw material of the archive to these new photographic works, a new story emerges. For fifteen years Sara Davidmann has taken photographs and recorded oral histories in collaboration with people from UK transgender and queer communities. Her work has been internationally exhibited and published. Ken. To be destroyed has been exhibited at Museum of Liverpool (2014), Limewharf Gallery (2014), PARCspace UAL Photography and the Archive Research Centre (2014) and at Unity Theatre for Homotopia's 10th Anniversary Arts Festival Liverpool (2013). Her first book Crossing the Line, was published by Dewi Lewis in 2003.
