In the project (S)kjønn Safari Harald and Louis sets the body in focus as a social construction contrary a unit pre decided by biological qualities. The project is based on discussions dealing with use of gender roles and stereotypes within artistic institutional framework and the art field. How are we unconsciously affected by constructed gender stereotypes?

 

The work is based on a re-negotiation of the body and explores the potential in working with physique from a gender neutral base, and which consequences politics and society have for gender as a stereotype and/or norm. Is it possible to create a third gender which is neither male or female, but as Harald and Louis suggests – gender neutral?

 

The original version of (S)kjønn Safari premiered in Oslo 2015 and have since been performed at Seminar#6 in Sandnes, Gallery Entrée, Bergen and at Kaospiloterne in Aarhus, Denmark.
