Meeting with artist: Lukas Avendano
Where:Tu i Teraz, Orląt Lwowskich Square 2
It is the Oaxaca region where Lucas Avendaño comes from. He has devoted his art to making the voice of his exceptional brothers (sisters?) heard and accepted by mainstream culture. By doing so, in a way, he becomes a spokesperson for all the people whose sexuality and gender roles are marginalized, looking for a well-deserved place among traditionally understood behaviours. In his work, the artist combines choreography, word and audiovisual materials to tell about the nature of the muxes, complex and full of contradictions, whose lives are torn between suffering and loneliness and a sense of pride and exceptionality.
