“Surfacing” is Mari Bø’s recent investigation into textures and movements connected to her own body.
Why should we limit ourselves to fit within a rigid binary, when our minds and bodies are so multifaceted and ever changing?
I imagine the biological spectrum as an infinity of possibilities, not situated along a linear axis, but muddled together in a huge grid.
The mind is malleable, able to construct and restrict even without conscious thought. I believe gender is constructed, that reality is fluid and in constant motion rather than stuck in the same place.
Throughout most of my life, my identity has been constructed around my body. I have gotten to know myself through an understanding of what it means to be ‘a woman’.
This has defined several aspects of my life, implicitly telling me who I should love, how I should move around in the world, what I should look like and how I am expected to act.
I have felt suffocated by my own biology, stuck in a predestined pattern, drowning in expectations. Studying my face, I look for narratives that differ from the one I have followed my whole life.
