As a performance piece, female art couple JF. Pierets are getting married in all 24 countries that provide same-sex marriage. At the end of the performance, an art/video installation will be exhibited, a book and a documentary will be launched.
22 is an art project that speaks of evolution and optimism. A time capsule that instantly refers to the possibility of change. That captures the zeitgeist of a world in the midst of change when it comes to gender equality and human rights. 22 celebrates the places that legalised gay marriage, and highlights the work that still needs to be done in the 170 countries that don’t.
At the current rate we will reach global recognition of same-sex marriage in the year 2142. That’s 125 years from now so let’s see if they can get it to go a bit faster.
