Drag eta kolonialismoa. Eragin koloniala dragaren estetiketan = Drag y colonialismo. La influencia colonial en las estéticas del drag = Drag and colonialism. Colonial influence on drag aesthetics
Starting with the participating works of the exhibition entitled Zin Ex. Body and Architecture, specifically Faz que Vai by Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca and Dislocation Blues by Sky Hopinka, the artist will present a performance that runs from occupied public space to the exhibition, where it will conclude with a discussion on the representation of trans bodies and colonial influence on drag aesthetics. Her performance is developed in both public and private spaces.
The politicisation of public space is key to delivering a message that opens up the possibility of encountering “diverse bodies” in our everyday lives, such as the normalisation of drag activities in spaces that are not accustomed to these types of bodies. Touching on topics such as racial, class, and gender violence, the activist uses her body as a means of delivering a clear message through it and her identity, with distance and distortion, blurring the limits between reality and fiction in an effort to help the audience-recipient understand and comprehend the message being delivered.
