2012  

You can watch an excerpt of the video bellow.

This autobiographical video is a reaction to a nationalist, anti homosexual article published in 2012 in a magazine for kids in the Dominican Republic. The video shows the formation of an identity that differs from the normative in a country where the catholic moral is imposed in education and in every aspect of society.

The 11 minute video experiments with the story telling by overlapping self-portraits of the naked body, landscapes, ambient sounds, and subtitles that jump from an intricate construction of my memories as conversations. The subtitles start of by questioning society's imposition of an heteronormative view on gender and sexual identity. 

The images are based on the exploration of how my body is perceived. Its looks and posture confronts the camera in relation to symbols I've encounter during the formation of my sexual identity; an identity I've found myself more comfortable not defining. 

 

Every shot has an intimate approach to all aspects of my sexual identity, to the point where I introduce another female body and my relationship to it.
