Jane Cottis Characteristics


Originally from Britain, Jane Cottis received her MFA at UC San Diego and has worked collectively on a number of Paper Tiger Television projects. Her work responds to media and film representations of lesbians, often using outrageous humor and deliberate parody of lesbian stereotypes to open up the social taboos that perpetuate fearful misconceptions of lesbianism. Cottis sometimes collaborates with photographer and video artist Kaucyila Brooke.
