“I'm beginning to understand that I am an exile from my own gender. A voluntary exile. Struggling, resisting. Against the one I should have been.”*

*We Are the Birds of the Coming Storm by Lola Lafon

Lola Lafon and Marie-Agnès Gillot together. Two personalities whose boldness, work ethics, and persistence command respect. They like nothing more than questioning history and fate, and their confidence is also doubt. A doubt that finds its roots in their flexibility, the constant change of what they are, the metamorphosis of what they continue to be. Possibilities must remain open so that they can be “beyond help,” joyfully beyond help, in projection, in escape, and above all in desire.
