Sticking to the norm is stuffy and makes us lose our identity.
The image darkens, the person as well then finally becomes « ugly » and victim of her artifices.
Metaphoric work on norms and diktats that society is imposing on us.
Since childhood I am conditioned to speak well, reeducating myself at the speech-language pathologist.
Since childhood, we’d say to me that I won’t do much because I am deaf.
And since childhood, we’d give me little girls games even if I preferred go ride a BMX.
In brief I do not want to stick to social beliefs :
I am a woman and deaf artist and proud to be.
It’s a conformity, a conditioning. A patriarcal society.
