Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Interrogating the contexts that give queer art its life, the exhibition attempts to untangle the messy ropes and thick sheets that conceal the rich and intricate lives of queer creatives. The works juxtapose interpellations across the fields of Cebuano art history, popular cultures, the social and economic spaces that frame queerness as subject and object of art.

In particular, the exhibit looks into the trope of the masculine body as a site of contestation and fabrication of identities and selfhood. The series of artworks suggest a deconstructed reading of the valorized masculine body via the homoerotic agency of queer-looking shaped by the nuances of Cebuano cultural life especially lived in the auspices of Downtown Cebu City.

Further drawing from the artist’s paradoxical struggles with queerness, the exhibit hopes to show the liberating aspirations of queer art-making. The works unmask veneered skins and polychromed shells as a way to retell the story of a long and arduous struggle for greater inclusivity of many who are othered and altered.
