Purpose of the residency

In the program, I will create an installation with total reflection which consists of lights and a clear glass. Two overlapping reflection, by different motifs or bodies, will be recognized momentary into the glass. This installation is a visual experiment of the imagination between similarities and differences, focuses on culturally shaped conceptions of identity such as gender, body or ethnicity. The work aims to break out of the binary thinking and structure.
