Excess Island

Excess Island (2011-2019) is a photographic project about an imaginary relation between the sea and the notion of sexuality. In this maritime territory gender and sexual notions, practices, hyper-extended dynamics of union are spatialized, and displaced, to overcome a limit; here the limit is a littoral. The notion of sexuality bends as a wave, waiting for that instant when it breaks on the seabed and skims. This project has to do with queering: horizons become a diagonal (from the German term quer) that cross and join apparently disjoint territories.
