Navigates between art, architecture, illustration, furniture and web design. Tries to be imaginative no matter the field.

Develops "Moratorium." as a personal approach since 2017, researching ways to conceive an architecture that solely develops within existing buildings.

Hands-on, always happy to leave the screen and hop into modification work.

Collects swatches and dvds, amongst other objects considered as obsolete today.

Especially interested in the way space constructs gender and identities.

Fascinated by Swiss post-modern design and mineral patterns.
Collector of shiny raincoats and other weird things like PEZ distributors and Harry Potter Legos.

Scénographie du genre
01/2021
Claire Logoz

Scénographie du genre researches the role domestic space plays in the social construction of gender. It focuses on the construction of architecture, but also on the constructions of architecture. Gender, as presented by constructivists like Judith Butler, is a social construction. But as geographers, architects and theorists showed it, it also is a spatial construction.

Performativity is the lens through which domestic space is analyzed in the work. Performativity is a theory according to which gender is always performed and therefore not natural: gender is constructed through gesture, signs, performances and discourses. Architecture, and more precisely domestic space, isn’t neutral and natural either: architecture has a rhetoric role and a complex relationship to social practices - hierarchies, power relations and norms are indeed inscribed in it.

Scénographie du genre studies the performativity of domestic space. Its objective is to operate a de-construction of gender through the de-construction of its built environment into performative architectural elements, in order to understand its essence. Selected performative elements - walls, doors, windows, floors, facades, kitchens, fireplaces, beds, closets, desks, curtains and mirrors – have been extracted from recognized architectural references and analyzed in order to propose a feminist and queer reinterpretation of our architectural culture.
