SKINS // THE TEMPLE OF DIVERSITY is a multimedia installation reflecting/portraying different counter cultures. It’s a design inspired by a temple, church or shrine and it’s expressions showing instead of well known “religious/lifestyle” archetypes showing different countercultures as entities. In their differences and the passionate devotion to themselves SKINS shows the human similarities. A shrine for humanity a temple for diversity ready to push ourselves back into our own embodiment. Guided by space holders making live soundscapes to create a neutral and safe atmosphere, we thrive to show a natural expressive state of being human. Ready to feel and heal ourselves leaving space to accept others. Celebrating each other’s differences, creating a safe environment, a space to humanise triggering harmony. SKINS invites you to travel along into our differences and celebrate diversity.
DRAG CULTURE // “I CAME CLEAN IN A DIRTY DRESS”
FILM // “I CAME CLEAN IN A DIRTY DRESS”
Installation and live performance in collaboration with soundscape artist sir o sir.
During the past two years, OT has been observing the gay/drag culture in Europe. The footage will be presented in varying presentations: as a film installation, a photographic exhibition, and a documentary to be released at a later date. The installation film, “I CAME CLEAN IN A DIRTY DRESS”, showcases some special and honest moments selected from OT’s observations. The compilation film is accompanied by a live soundscape composed and performed by sir o sir. The title “I CAME CLEAN IN A DIRTY DRESS”, is a quote from Gracey’s Newman’s poem “Ballads of a Drag”.
GOAL // Invitation to explore, accept and talk. Show beauty and appreciate differences.
