The Alchemical Androgyne (The Hermafrodite / Rebis), ever present character in my videos, embodies my search in the androgenization rites, in this case a rite performed by indigenous tribes where a man makes a cut in his crotch as a symbol to inhabit in a woman body, to live in the middle of two imposed sexes. A symbolic castration that I present as an invitation to “man” to reflect about his feminity. The other character is basically my way of using the right of rebellion through art, to criticize religión which seek to control the souls, current clinic aims to control the body (based not on health but disease) and The Armed Forces as the top of a pyramid that ends up collapsed.”
