LILIQUOI BLUE: GOD MADE ME A BOY

In 2009, Qasim Riza Shaheen, a Manchester-based British visual artist was invited to develop work that responded to the changing demographics of Dublin City Centre, where an abundance of hair dressers, beauty parlors, restaurants and karaoke bars have emerged over the past ten years, created by and catering largely for the new immigrant populations.

Qasim connected with members of the transgendered Filipino community in Dublin through the north inner city hair salon they frequent, and through these connections developed Liliquoi Blue: God Made Me a Boy. The piece consists of three video adaptations titled Father I have sinned I, II and III that explore ideas around beautification, gender, memories and fantasies, while also telling very personal stories of longing and transformation.

Presented in partnership with CityArts.

Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
