Rio de Janeiro – RJ, 1997
As an audiovisual artist, Caim seeks to capture the experiences surrounding them as they explore spaces – physical and non-physical alike – and subvert techniques as they traverse the path of experimentation. “Ever since I began photographing, I’ve looked to document subjectivities and for that reason, I believe my research will always be in an experimental phase. I like movement, marks, time, and traces”, they say.
In each series they make, their desire for the instantaneous moment, for the lightness of the presence of the people being photographed, and the movement of these bodies becomes more evident. The analog photography series “CID 10 F64” is an example of this search: “With the CID 10 F64 project, I intend to talk about bodies. Bodies in motion that traverse and survive cities. Bodies that reveal themselves through the subversion of norms, symbols, and codes. Bodies in crossed processes.”. The title of the series is a reference to the code [ICD-10 F64, in English] used by the WHO to refer to “Gender identity disorders” – the diagnosis given to bodies that, somehow, subvert the norms of masculinity/femininity.
