La Glacière is hosting “Extimité” until June 8, 2022, an exhibition featuring works by trans artists who return to their own journey.
The photographer and painter from Le Havre Mae Hazard exhibits a series of black and white shots, whose cloud hanging already illustrates the chaotic relationship to the body. “I am a trans woman in transition and these clichéd self-portraits express my relationship to my body and its femininity. The images are double, exposed or photographed with a prism that shows superimpositions of body parts, crisscrossed with lines and rather incisive shadows. »
The systematic non-search for beauty has the will to provoke a reaction, even an understanding of this particular relationship to the body. Another series by the same artist, of paintings and computer graphics, starts from negatives that will become positives. “These inks painted on paper are much more colorful. The choice of abstraction also seems perhaps more accessible: the spectator can tell the story he wants. »
“Make people understand what I’m going through”
The Le Havre artist Mr Gaetan discovered his trans identity during his studies at theHigher School of Art and Design Le Havre-Rouen (ESADHaR). “Through most of my projects, I try to make people understand what I’m going through, what I feel, without necessarily trying to produce educational content. » Mr. Gaëtan has developed a series from an engraving, telling the story of a character surrounded by fish whose eyes represent the gaze of others. The story of her journey as a trans person will be guided by a yellow fish which symbolizes the word “transgender”.
Resist the fascination of images
The organic work ofArmand van Mastrigt is an installation bringing together several other creations. “I try to understand how to resist the fascination of images with which society saturates us, by using the notion of intimacy. » The digestive system of the artist’s hand, which wants to digest virtual images, is particularly striking. “The fact of painting an image, even pornographic, gives it access to a different status from the virtual one. » The cellphone Plastic Trans by the Obsolete artist offers a final expression, just as moving, bringing together pieces locked up in plastic bags, like so many individuals suffering in isolation.
