Uurtje Oost: Paulina Vogel – Don’t know if I want a girlfriend or if, I want to be the girlfriend
‘My work will always somehow give a glimpse towards my utopia of a decolonized non-western queer ecology. There are many aspects and many layers in the construction of this utopia. It forms itself with new and fresh ways to see our world and interact with our surroundings. It is closely related with the way we see ourselves and others, it proposes an individual internal freedom and at the same time, rescues communal/collective values. It invites us to be open to new possibilities of interaction with time and space.’
This time, in collaboration with Li-Heng Kuo, Paulina investigates the expression of femininity and masculinity within one body. Two bodies in space, construct practices that give the ground to untie the freedom to explore the spectrum of gender identity. As much freedom to identify and to de-identify. We play with stereotypes, we construct and deconstruct our alter egos. What do we find in-between? What are the different physicalities and choreographies to be found within the different shades of gender?
We shape an alternative space where different possibilities can exist and transform. We create a mirror for others to relate or not relate to. We share our struggles. We heal ourselves. We offer it as an act of generosity.
Don’t know if I want a girlfriend or if, I want to be the girlfriend is a work in progress.
