Centennials - traveling art exhibition
The project started with my children entering adolescence, when I wanted to explore their so diverse expressions and how they affect my experience of living.
I started photographing and listening to teenagers from different backgrounds in Belo Horizonte (Brazil) my city. I meet women - cis transgender and non binary people, between 16 and 19 years old. People who grew up with cyberculture, living intensely on social networks - real names or fakes/ truth X lies / fame X anonymity, and are growing in a collapse of our binary edifice (man X woman/ masculine X feminine/ heterosexual x homosexual).
I pay attention to the processes of subjectivation of teenagers to think not only about their future, but also my own and our future as a whole. As they transform, I also want to observe my own transformation. In this process of disruption and reinvention, beyond just wanting to deal with the transformations that are happening to those bodies, this movement provides an encounter with the transmutations in the society of our times.
In the pandemic times, the work was transformed into a multimedia virtual gallery, mixing photography, video, animated gifs, writing and sound art. After that, I worked on the idea of an art object that could also be a traveling art exhibition.
