«Cenée» is a visible poem whose tale is influenced by a Greek fantasy and its abstract kind has been influenced by the visual novel «The Cage», published by Martin Vaughn-James in 2002. Its goal is to train us a single thing: gender was not an problem in Ancient Greece and the idea of id is far more fluid than what we even want to confess.”
“I consider our identity is one thing we all generate each day. It evolves, it improvements, it adapts. It is a building motivated by our beliefs, our ordeals, the world that surrounds us, and our have uniqueness… The original myth of Caeneus tells the tale of a female that, right after staying sexually abused by Poseidon, she asks him to be turned into a man, « so that she can under no circumstances be susceptible all over again.”
“This movie begins with that function but the narrative evolves into an interior search about self-id and the conjunction of masculinity and femininity in the exact particular person. It supports the strategy of non-binary gender in a delicate way.
« Cenée » goes against the reality that even currently we are meant to develop a cage, a prison for our strategies, for our self-expression to limit us, to make us think that everything is black or white, ideal or erroneous, male or woman. Once we cease thinking in a binary way, only then, we will be able to acknowledge ourselves and every person else.
Greek mythology was my principal inspiration simply because it is the culture we tend to look at when we’re searching for answers to aged humanity queries. I was amazed to see that historic greeks presently realized the idea of non-binary gender and in some way or a further they built-in into their lifestyle and passed it on to the up coming generations. Right now, much more than ever, we should find out from them to accept anyone as they want to be”
“I am a Venezuelan artist primarily based in Paris and I created this venture with a bunch of good friends and artists from France and other international locations. With a tiny budget, I resolved to surround myself with determined and engaged individuals that had been eager to give a voice to the non-binary community. I worked with vogue designers from Paris, jewellery crafters from the South of France and even antique dealers from La Ciotat.”
