COMING in out - Alban Ovanessian

These men were my coming out, having led me to leave a space, to land in another

Focused on the dialogue that heteronormativity maintains with the coming out process, the coming out is a process of acceptance and identity consolidation that can take any form in response to societies daily questioning of gender and sexual orientation.

The perspective of whispering one’s sexuality as opposed to disclosing one’s sexuality lends itself in this space naturally to the concept of passage.
Explicitly or implicitly, the overvalued shadows that pass through the life experiences exposed during this performance result from this indoctrination brought by the heteronormative society.

The presentation of these life samples scrutinizes the « degree outness » and by collecting data across dimensions of desire, leads us to reflect on the ostracism that heteronormative society imposes on the homosexual community.
