installation (handmade 8 boxes 2020-2021)

"Becoming a body" is a project I put my body central to the practice as the resource for inspiration and a site of struggles. The project stemmed from my self-identity/and -representation as a gender dissident with concerns of biopolitics that come from my journey pursuing an ‘ideal’ body. By using eight boxes as an installation and one moving image to represent two stages that I was going through on the journey, which are intertwined with each other and ended spiritually self-healing. The more the body performs, the farther it gets isolated from a contradictory fact, which Deleuze describes as the relation of the figure to its isolating space he interprets in Bacon’s painting. ​Additionally, the exploration of materials 'black velvet' used for the background inside the box and metallic print aims for popping up the figures by absorbing the extra light in the box.
