Terni, 2019

Some pictures of our ceramics project exploring gender and body normativity. Together with Thiago Antunes and Rebecca Sforzani we collaborated with the people from Centro Diurno Marco Polo in Terni, a protected activity space for psychiatric patients. What started with a discussion about 2 found cups, with “Her” and “Him” written on them, turned into a community-involving project over more than 2 weeks. We invited everbody to create personal cups and game figures that wouldn’t confirm to the industrial patterns and to play with concepts of “useful” , “able” and “weird”. In the end those cups and figures were painted in the colors of LGBTQI flags. While making them we had a lot of discussions about how game (and therefore social) structures are questioned when you have to take in account non-standardized shapes
