In his first performance, + -, Corentin JPM Leven explored his own grief related to HIV.
In Birds of Ill Omen, he takes a step further and looks at other issues related to HIV, where he examines the relationship between self-defined identity, which deviates from the normative, and identity as a result of medical assessments.
Historically, the homosexual has been placed as a figure who disturbs the order of nature and who can be punished from higher anger. How can the queer body identify itself when, on the one hand, it has been defined by medicine and on the other by popular fabulation?
Through his own HIV diagnosis, Leven problematizes the morbidity of the queer body and the many roles he, with the diagnosis, must play both socially and in the LGBTQ + environment.
In this visual performance, a space is created filled with memories and desires for an individual gay body. A place between the construction of a monument and a memorial, between science and liberation.
Corentin JPM Leven is a performance artist who works as a director, scenographer and actor. His work is strongly rooted in the heritage and history of the queer community. Leven has worked with, among others, Coco Rosie and Ulf Nilseng.
