IN BETWEEN OUTSIDE
"outside, inside and in between"
In between Outside could best be translated as "between outside". For an outside you need an inside so that rooms can be separated from one another. Through a physical outside and a society as an outside, an inside is manifested that is independent and yet can never completely escape its creator. Sascha was assigned to the female gender at birth, but Sascha now does not identify themselves as a woman, but not as a man either, therefore “non-binary”. Neither female nor male. Sascha searches in between and outside, plays with identity and attribution, with symbol and provocation. Together we question traditional gender roles, their separation and their vagueness in relation to Sascha's realities. The possibilities of rejection, the pressure to be intelligible and the right to opacity. In this long-term project, Anne Gabriel-Jürgens accompanies Sascha Rijkeboer in everyday life and seeks pictures accompanying the autobiographical essays that Sascha writes about their life. Sascha and Anne jointly question their images, experiences and habits of thinking with regard to their social interweaving. Through this common path, a friendship developed and nurtured trust for intimate gazes and their documentation.
