Like chrysalis turning into a butterfly, like petal blooming out of the bud, or snake skin getting tattered, man metamorphoses. Naturally of course, as in the circle of life. But sometimes he can also moult from his own will. Not necessarily as the chameleon, which purpose is to merge in the landscape. But more as Proteus, this sea god in Greek mythology, who can turn into any shape he likes, this invaluable gift he uses to muddy the waters. Nowadays’ Proteus don’t hide anymore, they fully get advantage of their freedom to seek, discover, and metamorphose themselves. Gender, origin, sexual orientation, and all the codified belongings our society is conditioned with, aren’t any more of their use to define themselves. That is their choice. Piercings, tattoos, colored hair, styled with a crest or a shaved skull, leather perfecto and pronounced eyeliner… From a season to another, they become different. Or rather themselves? Identity at instant T, far from yokes, beyond limits. Fundamentally, isn’t it exactly what identity is? When the unchanging becomes unstable, mysterious and assumed. Intangible Self!.
