Is l’amour de soi a “proper” way to express\r\noneself in the Balkans?
This\r\nseries aims to showcase third-wave\r\nfeminist stances from the Balkan region, while trying to pinpoint their vraisemblance as opposed to their\r\nalleged zeitgeist mimicry. As an Eastern European “Xennial”, I have lived\r\nthrough several sociopolitical appropriations, most of them clashing\r\nthunderously against traditionalism. Feminism was more of a guerrilla-aspiration\r\nin the Balkans within the past three decades, with urban pockets of casual\r\nvictories; sometimes, it was just a mass-media glossy trend; most of the times,\r\nit was expediently whitewashed by reactionary posturing. I’ve tried to capture\r\non film what I have visually heard, notwithstanding\r\nmy unapologetic male gaze.
The\r\ntechnique I am using for this photo-cycle is restricted to the manual processing of the 6x6 medium format film negatives,\r\nfollowed by combinations of \r\npost-development brutal retouches and graphic annotations, using several\r\ntypes of special inks and nibs directly\r\non the negatives. I opted for this form of seemingly chaotic calligraphy in order to emphasize an\r\nentropic sense of identity that occasionally requires additional layers of\r\nsocietal obscurity. Successive corrosive\r\nalterations of the film ensue, up to the brink of physical disintegrations.\r\nThe final technical stage calls for a particular form of film scanning, which erases\r\nfutile nuances and defensive artifacts.
And\r\nyes, just as the introductory question hints a J.J. Rousseau reference, the\r\ntitle of this series is, indeed, a U2 / S. Kubrick innuendo!
