eden levi am is presenting their most recent project, Rivers. Starting during the pandemic, the artist invited friends and acquaintances from the local queer community to be photographed in the rivers near Geneva. Here, the river represents a safe and liberating space–outside of the white and heteronormative society and away from the news–which welcomes and embraces marginalised queer bodies. Rather than generating further vulnerability, nudity and deviance from societal norms become empowering and emancipating. The project draws inspiration from different mythologies surrounding the river and its creatures, including the naiads, to propose a counter-narrative to social norms surrounding the body.
