“A poetic evidence that gender has not constantly been an concern.” Film Route & Photography by Alejandro BORJAS DUNCAN. Versions are Nathan Peron, Elea Bujosa, Pauline Painchault, Emett Suzie Moneze, Lisa Leroux, Brenda Oliveros.
«Cenée» is a visual poem whose tale is impressed by a Greek myth and its abstract form has been motivated by the visual novel «The Cage», revealed by Martin Vaughn-James in 2002. Its objective is to train us a single detail: gender was not an concern in Ancient Greece and the strategy of identity is a lot more fluid than what we even want to confess.”
“I believe that our id is something we all build each individual working day. It evolves, it variations, it adapts. It’s a development affected by our beliefs, our activities, the globe that surrounds us, and our own uniqueness… The primary fantasy of Caeneus tells the story of a woman that, immediately after remaining sexually abused by Poseidon, she asks him to be turned into a person, « so that she can in no way be susceptible again.”
“This movie starts off with that occasion but the narrative evolves into an interior look for about self-identity and the conjunction of masculinity and femininity in the very same personal. It supports the notion of non-binary gender in a delicate way.
« Cenée » goes towards the simple fact that even at present we are intended to create a cage, a jail for our strategies, for our self-expression to limit us, to make us think that everything is black or white, appropriate or completely wrong, male or woman. The moment we quit pondering in a binary way, only then, we will be equipped to take ourselves and anyone else.
Greek mythology was my key inspiration for the reason that it is the tradition we are likely to glance at when we’re on the lookout for answers to old humanity issues. I was shocked to see that historical greeks now realized the thought of non-binary gender and in some way or an additional they integrated into their society and passed it on to the up coming generations. Currently, a lot more than ever, we should really understand from them to accept everybody as they want to be”
“I am a Venezuelan artist primarily based in Paris and I designed this project with a bunch of close friends and artists from France and other international locations. With a tiny price range, I resolved to encompass myself with enthusiastic and engaged persons that ended up willing to give a voice to the non-binary neighborhood. I labored with fashion designers from Paris, jewelry crafters from the South of France and even antique sellers from La Ciotat.”
