“I don’t search, I find”


“There is no new art. There are new artists. The new artist must be completely faithful to him or herself, must be a creator, must be capable of building his or her own foundations directly and alone, without depending on the past or tradition… the formula is his or her antithisis”

Egon Schiele

“Without art life would be a mistake”
Friederich Nietzsche

The project takes its cue from the French novel by T. Jonquet "Tarantula" then played in the movie by Spanish director Pedro Almodovar "The Skin I Live In" It was born as a performance on the predominant theme about identity defence. What’s identity? Who can really know? Why is there still a need to confuse "gender identity" with "gender role"? Biological sex, gender identities and roles are complementary? Through social, sexual, psychological and biological analysis it comes out that there are four different realities: -The Biological Sex -Gender Identity -Gender Role -Sexual Orientation [...] Gender and sex are two separate things, even though the two words are often used interchangeably. Sex is a physical element whereas “Gender” is a component of identity which is placed in the brain.
