dyxphori centers around the theme of gender dysphoria from childhood to midlife, alongside music, cinema and camp culture cherished as a secret loophole; a vivid opportunity and primordial mainstay which provides footholds and perspectives in overcoming hostility; serving as a situated, safe and secure ground in order to survive. Comprised of 13 sculptural works thought to be visual songs, dyxphori was created and photographed in a location chosen for its specific qualities, from dark night till dawn.

All works produced by Jin, exclusively for Kunstraum Barthel, 2023.
