QUEER BODIES

2022
5m 18s
Collab w/ Mattia Friso
Performing: Hekaté Pyritidis, Tin Wang, Sarah Seini, Michl Best


Queer Bodies is a three chapters video installation that explores the process of embracing queer identity: From the death of the former self, to the searching for agency, to the creation of a community. The viewer is drawn into a reality where subjects tell about themselves and bodies manifest themselves in an unconventional way.

Exploring the question of how garments can be queered, the experimental costume work consists of draped material, re-purposed costume pieces, found objects, as well as references to queer subculture. An attempt at bringing bodies and material together in an open-ended way – without fixed patterns, sizes and fits. Queer Bodies aims to depict one fragment of our queer generation, centering performers from Berlin's LGBTQIA+ community.
