HERMETOPIA (work in progress)
A feminist series of intimate and surreal video portraits- on 3 women*’s desire for a child, self-empowerment and queer parenthood.
The stories unfold in three different time periods: before, during and after the pandemic. The body of the performer was added to a digitally created environment (3D-Animation)- a hermetosphere which contains a self-sufficient independent world. These jars which are used to cultivate plants symbolize protection for growth and development in a hermetic system. This references both the experience of isolation during the pandemic as well as the possibilities and future visions of reproductive technologies.
