QUEER ELEGIES (September 2013)
This is about identity.
Feminine, northern identity or weird, multiple identity. Or whatever identity.
This is asking questions from the heart of Human diversity.
This is what is the not quite right.
This is how identity formulates life. How culture modifies identity.
This is about what/who is a woman and what/who is a man. Is there a(ny) difference?
This is about controversial existence.
This is a palimpsest of feminine existence.
This is a clashing of northern reality - identity - with the volcanic landscape of the return of the repressed.
My aim is to shake the power structures, our structures, power lines.
This is about the obsession with identity and, at the same time, its destruction.
This is off the bounds.
