Glass is my skin
Glass is my skin, located at Palacio de Cristal (Retiro Park, Madrid), recreates a large scenography from elements usually present at the artists’ work, such as smoke, scenery and performance, and focuses on several issues of their interest: a revision of cultural inheritance, gender discourse and, above all, queer theory.
Their artistic production questions the normativity of historical narratives, and the conventions associated with the spectator to generate new stages from which to reimagine them. Their work often revisits materials from a bygone era to recover marginalized or ignored readings, producing installations choreographing the tension between visibility and opacity.
By way of approaches that blur the limits between film, dance, installation, social sculpture and performances, and which flow between reality and fiction, Boudry and Lorenz create settings which invite a collective negotiation with notions such as identity, stereotypes and resistance.
