1. Marcus Crandon - Socially Constructed Gender


    from Marcus Crandon Added 186 0 1

    My research is concerned with stereotypical western masculine traits. This performance aimed to explore the iconic image of the beard. Tweezers are seen as a very feminine object but the action of tweezing itself is a very aggressive process. I wanted to highlight the inherent aggression in hair removal and pruning that is usually associated with males. Check out - https://www.facebook.com/MarcusCrandonArtwork For more artwork.

    • Normal - Vraies Histoires de Vie dans l'Industrie Sexuelle


      from Nicola Mai Added 490 1 0

      Normal est un film documentaire de 48 mn qui relate la vie d’hommes, de femmes et de migrants transgenre travaillant dans l’industrie sexuelle. Réalisé à partir à partir des interviews menés sur le terrain en Albanie, en Italie et UK entre 1998 et 2010 par Nicola Mai, anthropologue de formation, Normal offre dans ce film, la parole a des minorités peu entendus. Le film présente de vraies histoires de vie et de vraies personnes, qui sont jouées par des acteurs pour protéger l’identité des interviewés et pour reproduire la dimension performative qui caractérise leur autoreprésentation dans le contexte des interviews. A Tirana, Besnick un jeune albanais use la violence pour ne pas tomber amoureux des femmes qu’il force a travailler pour lui. A Rome, Catalin, un jeune mineur Roumain vente ses services sexuels à d'autres hommes, car c'est le meilleur travail qu'il ait jamais eu. Après avoir utilisé la violence dans le passé, Adrian, un jeune homme roumain, il respecte désormais la femme qui travail il protège pour se maintenir en sécurité et hors de prison. A Londres, Candy une jeune femme roumaine aime son trafiquant au point de se faire condamner pour lui. Alina, une femme moldave travaille désormais de manière indépendante, après avoir été victimes de la traite, dans l'industrie sexuelle au Royaume-Uni. Enfin, Cynthia, une femme transgenre raconte la manière dont elle vend ses services sexuels pour nourrir sa famille en attendant d’avoir ses papiers.

 Ces voix souvent à l'encontre de nos attentes révèlent que la plus part des migrants qui travaillent dans l’industrie sexuelle ne sont ni sont exploités, ni forcés de vendre des services sexuels. Normal dévoile une histoire humaine de la migration et de la prostitution. Ces histoires parfois inattendues, parfois dérangeantes sont souvent contradictoires. Le spectateur est constamment remis en question par leurs paroles, leurs rêves et la vie qu'ils mènent contre toute attente.

      • Normal - Real Stories from the Sex Industry (English No Subtitles)


        from Nicola Mai Added 762 2 0

        Normal is a 48 minute creative documentary that brings the real life stories of male, female and transgender migrants working in the sex industry to the screen. Drawing on original interviews with people working in the sex industry in Albania, Italy and the UK, documentary director and anthropologist Nicola Mai reveals their unheard voices. In Tirana we meet Besnik, an Albanian young man who uses violence to stop his women getting under his skin. In Rome, Catalin is a Romanian minor selling sex to other men as it’s the best job he’s ever had. Having used violence in the past, Adrian, a Romanian young man, now respects his working girl to keep himself safe and out of jail. In London there’s Candy, a Romanian young woman who loves her trafficker to the point of getting convicted for controlling. Alina, a Moldovan woman, decides to work independently in the UK sex industry after having been trafficked. We also meet Cynthia, a transgender woman selling sex to feed her estranged family while waiting to fix her papers. These voices often go against the grain of popular expectations that most migrant sex workers are exploited and forced to sell sex against their will. Confronting these attitudes, Normal uncovers a layered, human story of migration and sex work. What we hear are unexpected, disturbing, sometimes moving and often contradictory life stories. The viewer is continually challenged by the truth of their words, their dreams and the lives that they lead. All the characters are portrayed by actors, guaranteeing the anonymity and safety of the original interviewees and emphasizing the inherently performative nature of selves.
