F L E S H - A collaborative work with Taipei Popcorn.
F L E S H is the third installment in a collaborative series of work between myself and Drag Queen Taipei Popcorn. In these works we have a collaborative exchange where I produce the garment and images and Popcorn produces the makeup, music, and performance (Drag). These works, which include previous works - The Vulva (my pussy) and Give Me Head - we seek to continue to produce work and present work in spaces that both produce new alternatives to the heteronormative and pornographic male gave, challenge censorship of the body, examine femme desirability and explore the monstrous femme.
This is in aims of fostering new relationships, new works and exploring the boundaries of what body is, what art is, and the spaces art takes places. The work will also take frame against homogenising colonial heteronormative gaze and look at the ways in which bodies are framed. Gender is explored as fluid.
Exhibiting these works within Drag culture and Queer spaces manifested new conversations to occur that normally wouldn’t have outside of the patriarchal driven spaces that exist within typical gallery spaces. This is one of the main driving reasons this work has been exhibited in Queer spaces within Taipei rather than it’s ‘white cube’ counterparts.
