OCTOBRE

Neil Hoehner

I started to dream about this upcoming solo work with the curiosity in digging into supernatural characters that, referred to folkloristic culture, are meant as “freaks of nature”: physical unusual humans with extraordinary conditions and intersex variations. A very big inspiration came from the “Freak Shows” that were happening in the USA starting in the year 1840. In particular, I got fascinated by the siamese character: its handicap stays in the physical duality, which I think relies in each person. The two sides can be perfectly combined, to even reach a kiss, as much as being completely opposite but still necessary one to the other.
