I FEBRUARI 2022, NÄR JAG PRESENTERADE ETT KOREOGRAFISKT FORSKNING SOM JAG ARBETADE MED, FRÅGADE DAVID NORSWORTHY, DANSARE/KOREOGRAF OCH KONSTPEDAGOG, MIG: HUR KAN DU PRESENTERA DINA KONSTNÄRLIGA INTRESSEN? 

Genom forskningsprocessen kring olika verk som jag har gjort har ett specifikt utrymme strukturerats under årens lopp, och jag har blivit medveten om att det som fick min forskning att existera, fördjupas och ifrågasätta den allmänna definitionen av ordet "konst" var DETTA utrymme, med titeln: EN KONSTNÄRLIG PRAKTIK.

  

Oavsett projektets tema har min praxis alltid varit att ta itu med följande tre frågor i varje kreativ process som framkallas :

VAD - HUR - VARFÖR ? 

 

What is the "what" I want to investigate ? What is the zone I am looking for ? What do I target artistically speaking ? 

How do I express this « what » through a performative context and how do I incorporate a physicality ? 

Why is it important for me to stage the "what" in this way ? 

 

Understanding my identity as a filter for my research had guided the content of my artistic practice and how it fit together : WHO/WHAT I AM will lead to WHAT I DO. 

 

My interests within this practice are articulated in the simple act of embodying something that has no body yet such as a societal fact, a personal life experience, an aesthetic, etc. 

The physical materiality of these unbodied elements proposes a functionality, a dramaturgical content, a narrative that I want to explore in relation with the cultural/social/political/sexual/functional body.

The physical outlets becomes content that generate visual narratives where various mediums (light design, sound, text, set design, costumes, installations, etc.) intersect. 

Through a queer mindset and a non-binary logic, my practice operates as a body/laboratory within an underground poetic where I do question the tools, the systems, the processes, the mediums that activate the process of receiving for the audience : What do I see ? What do I get from this ? What does it make me think/feel ?
