A Womb of Divine Strange Inceptions

Set mainly at Avebury, a Neolithic site sacred to neo-paganism and other alternative forms of spirituality, this video is about queerness, spirituality and the land. My voice whispers a short poem I’ve written during my research on Queer Spirit, a spirituality made by and for queer people, which doesn’t only “tolerate” queerness but instead celebrates it and makes it key to understanding the world around us. The video becomes a sort of spell against patriarchy and heteronormativity, depicting a (natural) world which is more complex and multi-layered than what centuries of macho/male-centred culture has led us to believe. The overlaying of images tries to show the complexity of nature, its links and ties between all matter, a becoming-with which becomes intrinsically spiritual.

A Womb of Divine Strange Inceptions

I'm a demon, a heretic, I’m evil, I trick you in the grove

Oh sacred grove, a portal in another dimension

A womb of divine strange inceptions

Of new things that come from old

Or better, a hole through which we go through again and again to find pleasure, ecstasy and our whole (whore) Selves,

United but disjointed,

Multiple bodies fusing skin and saliva

For a new brotherhood of men, and sisterhood of women, of trans- men and women and all in between,

a NEW THING

of muddy leaves and juicy fruits

Of green grass imbued with our sweat,

Of mouths holes pores tears and laughs,

Energy from heart to heart.

This is the Spirit you tried to suppress

But now with all our force we are back
