Dealing with our fears and struggles through physical and mental borders that fail to provide security for us and accept us for into the larger society, I performed strikethrough breaking a mirror that reveal my old and new self (the male-female identities of being two spirited) .
Strikethrough is a performative narrations of an erasure with traces of psychological trauma and torture while navigating our colonial boundaries. It reexamine our own sense vulnerability, rejections and discriminations at space not design for the “Others” or “foreign bodies”.
The performance was synthesised with multichannel video of the border securities dealing with the artists (non-binary) travel document with racial and gender confusions. It reveals my personal struggles traveling between borders, Europe and Africa and unveil my detentions stories at some airports.
