freakylicious @parallelvienna art fair 2022
The Art Collection Schlichtner presents at Parallel Vienna 2022 the artistic practice of various artists who deal with opportunities and difficulties, stereotypes and prejudices regarding binary and non-binary gender roles.
Due to the insistence of many societies and regimes on a binary gender order and repeated heteronormative practices, art offers the possibility to question the colonial techno-pharmaceutical patriarchy in the sense of Paul B. Preciadio.
In order to enable love, relations, to eventually achieve equality, self-discovery and socialization, and to fight for human rights, this dispositive is taken from the private to the public creating a heterotopia.

selfie competence is a screen print, a pink selfie print on mirror:
Combining two heterotopias the mirror reflects and transports a real
location into a virtual heterotopia and shows what is hidden in the
viewer’s back, as well as the mask shows and transforms what it’s hiding:
the trans-face. The presence shows an absence, a self-reflexive and
self-reflective paradox. The selfie replaces the mirror’s reflection:
mirroring is fundamental for Human survival and intersubjectivity.
To print a masked selfie on a mirror combines two heterotopias
colliding into a heterogenous transcending and transforming image
constantly dealing with space and body, and virtuality.
The printed selfie was taken after a collective performance while wearing
a cosmetic face mask. The cosmetic mask is visible only from special
perspectives and light conditions due to the fine screen print
directly on the dark mirror. That is why visitors, spectators, and voyeurs
are invoked to change positions and standpoints, perspectives.

The video is showing a fantasmatic parallel reality where entities morph between slugs and tongues like microbes while producing velar, uvular and glottal noises and performing love poems.
