25. Габровско Биенале на хумора и сатирата в изкуството
Hormones is a part of Across The Border, a project by artist Filippo Minelli, discussing topics of migration and identity in the age of big-data. We (Dalia Khalife and Ghida Bahsoun) participated in the project to realize a flag and performative public interventions. The flag has to contain a word connecting to each country. For Lebanon, we picked “Hormones”. Hormones is a reference to a sticker found on a banana in a vegetable market in Beirut. The word caught our attention as it raises problematics regarding the country. First, in how ironically casual pollution and corruption have become in relation with food safety. Second, it is a satirical way of shedding light on patriarchical behavioral patterns, such as the excessively `testosterone-fueled` leaderships in the political sphere, and the male dominated public space especially with legistalive elections occurring at that time.
