Eva Vraeghe – Hans
The Netherlands – Amsterdam
Hans has studied classical theatre since he was 3 years old, and views drag as an art form where he truly transforms into another person. Eva started off as a beauty drag queen, but one day, she let herself loose and started to create and wear crazy outfits, make-up and wigs. Currently, Eva is hybernating, but Hans is sure that she one day will rise (like a Phoenix).
Drag Queens of the World is an international research project, combining art and anthropology. Its unique in its scope: We met, interviewed and photographed drag queens from all over the world, we went to their clubs and made background research about their place in their local environment. The project has resulted in exhibitions and lectures from Sao Paulo to Tromsø and from Tijuana to Dhaka. Currently, we are rounding of the project by making the book Drag Queens of the World, which you can contribute to in our crowdfunding campaign. All the art works are for sale, and lectures, art events and consultancy services can be arranged with us at the Faketory and our artistic director Martijn Crowe.
