__MARTYRDOM__

Curated ad created by: Slim Soledad

Martyrdom, from the Latin MARTYRIUM, torment or great suffering. Martyrdom is a person who suffers persecution or even death for defending, resigning or refusing to defend a cause required by an external force. In many cases, the term is attributed to someone who dies in the name of a social or political ideal.

In this re-reading to the residence, performance is developed from searching for the ideals of humanization and socio-political standards imposed on bodies seen as bad, feminine, deviant, rebel and dissident.

Slim Soledad is a black travesti, performer and multi artist from São Paulo, Brazil based in Berlin. About 2 years ago started acting as DJ and yours researched as a DJ starts from

brazilian funk extending something more experimental and then is kind of crazy frying with very specific points that cross my soul. Slim is part of the queer collective called Chernobyl focused on a POC and LGBTQIA+ audience.

MARTYRIUM Project

The performance is an experiment that we developed from a social critique referring to the city of Chernobyl (UC) where a nuclear accident occurred causing many deaths and leading to genetic deformation of several people who lived in its surroundings for subsequent generations. The experiment is based precisely on the appropriation and resignification of the name, due to attacks that occur virtually where they use the term “chernobyl” as oppression for dissident bodies. Martyrdom, from Latin MARTYRIUM, torment or great suffering. Martyrdom is a person who suffers persecution and death for defending, renouncing or refusing to renounce, or refusing to defend a cause demanded by an external force. In many cases the term is attributed to someone who dies in the name of a social or political ideal. Currently Brazil is the country that kills most LGBTQIA+ people in the world, many cases of hate and prejudice are imposed and professed by several factors, but exclusively the Protestant religious (Christianity). This population that is LGBTQI, respect. Therefore, trying to target new life perspectives and policies. Therefore, the performance is based on these punished bodies trying to get rid of the which is on the fringes and fights daily for their ideals in search of humanization and imposed sociopolitical standards. Where we create an atmosphere to metaphorically represent the resumption of the aesthetically oppressive religious space. Referring to these bodies from Chernobyl as toxic bodies and blaspheming the belief of those who condemn us, representing our own martyr.

Slim Soledad black travesti, performer and multiartist from São Paulo, Brasil. Currently develops her work living in Berlin. About two years ago she’s started acting as DJ and your reserch as DJ starts from brazilian funk extending something more experimental. Build your mixes permeating the techno, industrial musical lines experimenting with Baile Funk: “My sets are the kind of crazy frying with very specific points that cross my soul.” She’s part of a queer collective called Chernobyl focused on a POC and LGBTQIA+.

Limitrofe Television emerged in 2017 from the meeting of our individual needs to deprogram the way in which audiovisual projects are programmed and executed through social access, hierarchy and the impossibility of our bodies to join these means, without demarcating our identity and creating our space. It is the intensification of collective powers which seeks more than to survive in a totally cis-white-normative system. Working daily physically and mentally to expand our possibilities of existence in a minimally stable and prosperous experience for those who really need to prosper and leave misery behind. Constituted by Enantios Dromos, 22 years old, trans man, working class, multimedia artist, with a focus on redirecting image / filming and performance, born in Bagé; and Pedro Ferreira, 23 years old, trans NB, also a multimedia artist with a focus on photography, working class, born in the countryside of Sao Paulo.

* This project is part of Oyoun‘s curatorial focus:

“EMBODIED TEMPORALITIES”

The program sets to investigate the embodied memories and identities through diasporic and gender-critical perspectives. The body emerges as a changing relationship and at the same time unfolds as an ethical horizon and challenge for the (un)making of the self, identity, and belonging. “Embodied Temporalities’ will unravel the possibilities by the means of the language of art while exploring and diversifying collaborations through intersectional, anti-fascist, and decolonial perspectives.
