My sweet nasty lunacy

Vrouwe Zotte, a fantasy friend, embodies 'woman' as a new fantasy animal outside gender frameworks and 'zot' as a protest against imposed expectations. From 2018 to 2021, Hélène wrote letters to her every day, collected in a book. In three residencies she investigated how Lady Zotte was in her body and sounded through her voice.

Since 2022, Hélène has been studying Gender Studies and incorporates theories about queerness, sexuality, drag and feminism into her work. In my sweet nasty lunacy, voice and song are central. With her soprano voice and the hyper pop genre, she explores the extremes of the 'Silly Voice': from screaming and laughing to mantras and bubblegum pop choruses, all as a queer feminist manifesto.

Hyperpop, with its eclectic and whimsical character, fits perfectly with my correspondence with Vrouwe Zotte. Think of influences from Björk, Charli XCX, Arca and SOPHIE. The research focuses on queer, feminist and decolonial perspectives, inspired by works such as Adrienne Maree Brown's Pleasure Activism and Audre Lorde's Uses of the Erotic.
