Morgane Faes Cortes - Visual Artist / Pornographer / Gender Bender
Portrait by Madison Shipman
It' s through the production of images that I question the representation of the body, by reappropriating these images and confronting them to their own paradoxes, by questionning the norms of gender and the many disorders in performativities rituals.
Its the ecstactic experience of the body that motivates my research and my desires to unveil the differences and deceptions of woman/ man as a fake system of categorization of the body, as well as heterosexuality as a sexual hegemony.
With a stripped and Kitsch aesthetic, I tend to reify the body, to reproduce otherness, to denounce the artificiality and acceptance of the body as feminine, masculine or non-binary.
Inspired by Queer theories, I draw my references from alternatives gay cultures, techno, club and drag references that I tend to copy, duplicates, cut, recollect, cover and transform. In order to define my own identity, as well as my own postion in these communities.
