Horse of Travesti
Horse of Travesti is an invitation to a fertile ground for fiction as a practice to infect or blend with conventional narratives in order to breed futures-to-be-confirmed/demonstrated. It is a quest -from travesti senses for perception- for finding traces, dust off hidden messages and recover the testimony of a dissident cultural movement, practice and community inevitably present anywhere, but with particular ways in each place. The project points to a decolonial archaeological activity, since it won’t impose a new narrative neither use violence, even though it has the intention to question a fixed givenTruth –compact, narrow, impermeable, as in any other territory- about Giessen.
The aim of the project is plural: making evident how not only dissident communities can and need to reclaim the territories where they are present. It sets as well the perspective on the relationship of people, mainly children, in their city and makes visible how questioning a given Truth can allow other significance and meanings to arise, for space becoming an archive of the different presences wandering through it. In the middle of all the different interpretations coming from each person’s presence, a sense of meeting point and plural safe space blooms.
Do these spaces preexist the ones who need them and can awaken their potential as reclaimed for marginalized communities?
Are the ones possibly to be found exploring a determined territory, bring light for tracing unvisible communities and their tacit presence? Can kin travesti ancestors be found by their legitimate voluntary heirs?
