Love Research

‘Love Research’ is a one take video, wherein I sing a song surrounded by a crowd of elderly women performing a synchronized choreography. The alterego ‘The pregnant boy’ reappears in my work since 2015, each time unfolding different parts of an ongoing narrative. The body extension of this alter-ego is the womb that is inspired by the unique phenomena of male pregnant seahorses. The alien pop star persona of ‘The Pregnant Boy’ is influenced by my career as a child pop star in early 2000s in Kosovo. ‘Love Research’ explores loneliness within the marginalized by presenting it as a meeting point between  elderly and non-binary bodies. Marginalization by its very nature brings about a sense of disconnection, dissociation from society at large, and a sense of aloneness and loneliness. In this work, love and intimacy are seen as healing powers for individuals, communities and cultures.
