You Am I - A celebration of Modern Identity!


VWG_You Am I.jpg

Step into this lively and colorful Utopia where class, race, sexuality, age, abilities, belief systems and gender dance in all their beauty and complexities to a rhythmic beat of respect, tolerance and understanding.

Intermingled, intertwined, interfacing. In an age where we seek ideological purity, ‘You Am I’ examines how each of these facets of our identity can coexist in analogous ambiguity. How are these multiplicities embraced? Is there a singular thread that weaves across the identity landscape: binding, repairing? Is there a rise of fantastical individualism? Or does identity melt into a pool of punctuated homogeny? As the dance progresses, do we forget to notice? Our diversity becomes our unity as we sway forward to the beat of this neoteric revolution.

You am I, I am you, we are one.
