Morgane Faes Cortes composes a universe inspired by gay and queer subcultures, of which she reproduces and hijacks the codes in order to build a marginal space where social conventions no longer take place. Hidden reflection of the company, the backroom of Morgane Faes Cortes is like the back-rooms present in places of gay conviviality: it is a space of meetings, of freedom and disinhibition, where the fantasies take precedence over the reality, where sexuality becomes socializing ritual, where the body appears in its simplest apparatus.
Counter-Eden from which nothing comes out, the backroom of the artist is always packed, it swarms with body, body shapes, ghosts of body. Hybrid bodies, fragmented, neither human nor animal, nor man nor woman, neither dead nor alive, bodies that it decomposes and recomposes, that it transforms and disguises, revealing the strings of habitus that hug us.
With a kitsch and stripped aesthetic that defies aesthetic canons, Morgane Faes Cortes invites us to let go in her post-pornographic den where sexuality meets the feast, where desire no longer has gender or orientation, where the pleasure emancipated from genitality and is not afraid to use technology.
