While borrowing its title to the faceless, avenging deity of Game of Thrones, the many faced god·dess draws inspiration from the influence of impersonation practices on queer theory and contemporary artistic practices, amongst which drag appears paramount. From the original observations of drag performances leading to Judith Butler’s seminal book Gender Trouble to Elizabeth Freeman’s temporal drag concept, investigating the pull of the past on the present through practices of retrogression, genealogy and memory, drag practices and their sister- practices (cosplay, fandom, comedy, performance, theatricality) create a strategic, politic and reflexive stage, engaging not only with how bodies are constructed but also inhabited and interpreted. But also with how chronopolitics come to play with them : allowing to perform a critical and historical genealogy. The exhibition will gather artistic and amateur practices around the ideas of mask- wearing, summoning ancestors and mythological beings, as well as performing strategic and fractal identities, and will channel a multitude of historical, fictional or contemporary characters, stressing the multiplicity of our belongings, the impermanence of our identities, and the power of our transformations.
