Au-delà : Transgression. Trans-identité. Transcendance

Abstract : These reflections mark out an intellectual, political and artistic journey, driven by the desire to go beyond codes and to move away from the norms of representation. In the line of gender studies, we discuss the possibility of a troubled gender in the field of art, to then propose a reassessment of the very idea of identity. I explore trans-identity, that is to say the multiplication of appearances and the end of the unique identity, before evoking the idea of a transcendental, even spiritual and religious dimension, behind these identity questions. By relying on different plastic and performative practices, including my own, we will become aware of the artificiality of our social and visual identities in order to get closer to a form of inner reality, the entity. We will meet different figures, from the Witch to the Saint, who, while raising questions of their own, will feed this disruption of hierarchies, reference points and identities.
