Cenée, a visual poem about non-binary gender

“A poetic proof that gender has not often been an issue.” Movie Path & Pictures by Alejandro BORJAS DUNCAN. Products are Nathan Peron, Elea Bujosa, Pauline Painchault, Emett Suzie Moneze, Lisa Leroux, Brenda Oliveros.

«Cenée» is a visual poem whose story is impressed by a Greek fantasy and its summary kind has been motivated by the visual novel «The Cage», revealed by Martin Vaughn-James in 2002. Its target is to educate us just one thing: gender was not an situation in Ancient Greece and the strategy of identification is more fluid than what we even want to admit.”

“I feel our id is some thing we all build each working day. It evolves, it alterations, it adapts. It is a construction influenced by our beliefs, our encounters, the globe that surrounds us, and our very own uniqueness… The first myth of Caeneus tells the tale of a woman that, soon after remaining sexually abused by Poseidon, she asks him to be turned into a guy, « so that she can never be vulnerable all over again.”

“This film begins with that event but the narrative evolves into an interior research about self-identity and the conjunction of masculinity and femininity in the same specific. It supports the principle of non-binary gender in a delicate way.

« Cenée » goes against the fact that even these days we are intended to establish a cage, a prison for our tips, for our self-expression to limit us, to make us imagine that everything is black or white, appropriate or erroneous, male or female. When we prevent contemplating in a binary way, only then, we will be ready to accept ourselves and all people else.

Greek mythology was my principal inspiration because it’s the culture we tend to search at when we’re looking for answers to aged humanity issues. I was stunned to see that historical greeks presently understood the idea of non-binary gender and in some way or another they built-in into their tradition and handed it on to the next generations. Now, additional than at any time, we really should understand from them to acknowledge everyone as they want to be”

“I am a Venezuelan artist based mostly in Paris and I manufactured this project with a bunch of mates and artists from France and other international locations. With a smaller funds, I made the decision to encompass myself with determined and engaged folks that have been prepared to give a voice to the non-binary group. I labored with fashion designers from Paris, jewelry crafters from the South of France and even antique dealers from La Ciotat.”
