Katia Repina – My Own Wings | Queerowy Maj

19.05–26.05
opening: Sunday, 19.05, 8 p.m.
Warsztat, Zabłocie 9a/9b, Krakow

We invite you to enter into the intimate world of intersexual people: let’s see together My Own Wings (project by Katia Repina), which grow from the backs of people from Panama to Russia. Let’s get together into the intimate world of the play of lights, faces emerging from the darkness and courage that the heroes of the images have distinguished. They all share some characteristics – interseuality, reluctance on the part of society, fear. We feel, however, the courage of people who have the strength to be themselves.

The project is based on different testimonies from intersex people as well as research on different social, medical and legal issues. As of now the project counts with 25 stories of intersex people living in Spain, the U.S., Ukraine, Russia, Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Panama sharing their stories as an unique invitation to their inside world and experience.
