ANDREW A STRONG COURAGEOUS WARRIOR.

2016, 18min, Single screen, Experimental Documentary

A voyeuristic look at the daily life of Andrew and Abigail. They are increasingly becoming one, alternating between male and female. Which of them is real?

 

A. Liparoto studied the construction of identity and left womanhood to subsequently transform into a male and androgynous person. Filmed over nine months in the maker’s apartment, real life becomes a performance in which it seems almost impossible to escape the fiction’s power.

I AM BECOMING. 

I AM BECOMING   

Performance based research, 2015

 

Duration: 9 Months 

A 9 month long auto-ethnographic investigation, re-imagining their sense of self around the premise of “What if 28 years ago they had said ‘it’s a boy”, examining the effect of performing gender in daily life through material culture. The project which embraces low and prolific image-making culminated in a film which engages with the domestic aspect of the project and a book ‘Andrew has his period. (Anecdotes of Androgyny)’. 

 

‘THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING OTHER THAN YOU HAVE COMMONLY THOUGHT YOURSELF TO BE.’ Screening & Installation @ Strangelove Festival, Antwerpen (BE) Photos: Patrick Lemineur

‘The Possibility of Being Other than You have Commonly Thought Yourself to Be’ is a solo exhibition featuring the installation work ‘The Possibility Of’’ commissioned and constructed for the Strangelove festival. The installation which plays with construction aesthetics and large scale collages, reflects on the disjointed experience of how to frame ones self in daily life post ‘Andrew has his Period’ artistic research.
