My project “Paradigm” tries to depict what a utopian society could look like when engaged in a new political approach that holds together all pluralities of genders in order to even delete the very concept of gender.
“Paradigm” combines portraits of the queer milieu of Paris and landscapes that represent transformation, transition and a becoming. These pictures are a proposal to consider these places and people as the scenery and characters of a new humanity and the representation of a new beginning.
The post-gender theory questions the dualism of western society, deconstructing identities, categories, relations and spaces. Dualism feeds a logic and practices of a domination system over women, people of color, workers and nature. Male/female, self/other, mind/body, whole/part; dualism results in subordination. Body is complex, multiple and can’t fit with binary categories of gender.
This project means to me a personal investigation, a deconstruction process and a political engagement.
