Saints & Martyrs in ecstatic moments of doom and apotheosis.
Sculptures created to exist only as photographs, auratic and not. Slow photographs: constructions to be disassembled by tactile eyes.The work is hybrid - queer in content and form.
If religious representations of physical abuse were a way to smuggle the eroticized body into visual experience, it is also true that gay erotica borrowed from those historic representations of saints, making a two way street of visual representation (versatile). Saints & Martyrs re-signifies the erudite and the vernacular into a queer genealogy.
