about 2faced1.com

2FACED1.com shows one persons two different faces in photos;

Persona 1:
WHAT YOU WANT TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

Persona 2:
WHAT YOU FEAR TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

This leads to a discussion about stereotypes and inner fears of getting misunderstood by the surroundings. Thoughts that every thinking modern day person does reflect upon. We're asking every day people from an innercity context where old categories as ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class are reassessed, why they choose to look like they do. We’re diggin' deep, peeling off garments, codes and attributes. We’re searching for transnational identities - is the conclusion that we choose whoever we want to be today?!

 

A 2FACED1 STATE OF MIND

A 2FACED1 is highly aware of existing stereotypes related to your own ethnicity, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and class. You’re trying to avoid them but sometimes also play with them to make people think twice about who you are. Two faced doesn’t mean anything negative here, it explains the double folded view you have on identity if you’re not the existing norm. Self awareness is a gift, because it also helps you to understand other peoples situations better. To be a 2FACED1 is to have the feet in different worlds, be able to move between them but feel rather at home in that space in between. You've stepped out of your comfort zone and has become one of the new identities where ol' categories are mashed up and rootlessness and non-given identity just means major possibilities.

Show Time @ Selfridges

Post date Tue 8 May 2012 3:38 PM

I created a performance for Selfridges and Swedish Hasbeens in Mars, featuring some amzing dancers and gymnasts from both Sweden, London and Australia! Above you se Therese who's not here for her good looks - the girl is multiple Swedish Champion in Rythmic Gymnastics, below Voguer/ Waacker Bianca, Circus-artis Rhiannon and the dancers! As dim as it might sound - I don't have video of this...But Pernilla said she became teary-eyed so you'll have to trust her nerve for sentimentality hehe! Music once again maestro Jocke Åhlund and I'm also thanking superassistant Jonas, Hair-Herman, Make-Lou and assistants for a great contribution!

Very emotional show. You cant see it so much on the pictures. But it was a real tear jerker. Or maybe it was just me....:)
