"The project Transexotic by the artist Carolina Nylund addresses international stereotypes, specifically the idea of " the other " as it may be projected or manifested through one's own personality. To what extent do we allow and accept that our personalities, our identities are formed in part by the limited two-dimensional caricatures invented and maintained by forces and phenomena external to us? Nationalism, patriotism, politics, ethnicity, subcultural affiliation, gender, sexuality, career, family: there are countless factors that may play a role in shaping an identity and which can also affect how we are perceived by others. And when we feel that gaze, how does that affect us? "
