«Cenée» is a visible poem whose tale is encouraged by a Greek fantasy and its summary form has been influenced by the visible novel «The Cage», released by Martin Vaughn-James in 2002. Its intention is to educate us a person point: gender was not an difficulty in Historic Greece and the idea of identity is extra fluid than what we even want to acknowledge.”
“I feel our id is one thing we all make every working day. It evolves, it changes, it adapts. It is a design influenced by our beliefs, our encounters, the planet that surrounds us, and our have uniqueness… The initial myth of Caeneus tells the story of a female that, right after remaining sexually abused by Poseidon, she asks him to be turned into a man, « so that she can never be susceptible once more.”
“This movie commences with that occasion but the narrative evolves into an internal lookup about self-identification and the conjunction of masculinity and femininity in the very same unique. It supports the idea of non-binary gender in a subtle way.
« Cenée » goes versus the point that even nowadays we are supposed to develop a cage, a prison for our tips, for our self-expression to limit us, to make us consider that almost everything is black or white, correct or improper, male or female. As soon as we cease considering in a binary way, only then, we will be equipped to settle for ourselves and everyone else.
Greek mythology was my primary inspiration because it is the lifestyle we are inclined to glimpse at when we’re seeking for solutions to old humanity thoughts. I was amazed to see that historic greeks already realized the principle of non-binary gender and in some way or a different they integrated into their society and passed it on to the up coming generations. These days, additional than ever, we need to understand from them to settle for anyone as they want to be”
“I am a Venezuelan artist primarily based in Paris and I designed this venture with a bunch of friends and artists from France and other international locations. With a smaller budget, I decided to surround myself with enthusiastic and engaged folks that were eager to give a voice to the non-binary neighborhood. I labored with vogue designers from Paris, jewellery crafters from the South of France and even antique dealers from La Ciotat.”
