Odessa

Through his own hundred deaths, the androgyne Odessa reflects on the historical brutality borne from sexual theory, reclaiming the emblem which has silenced him for one final futile attempt at revenge.

Part polemic against progressivism, part threnody for the losses of a century, Odessa mimics our collective application of the beautiful, and deconstructs the impact of technology and science on sexuality, which are symbolically destroyed in its climax.

It questions our constructed identities and laments forgiveness of the unforgivable.
