GANG BANG FOREST

Next Friday I will have the pleasure of being taking pictures in the Gang Bang Forest at Komplot Galley (Brussels). Can't wait!


'Didn't you ever notice how close the Big Bang and the Gang Bang are? It all started with a bang adorned by the commotion of the birds: it was the outbreak of the anus that had been castrated by the heterosexual regime in exchange for the stabbing privilege of masculinity. From then on everything changed here, between the trees of the woods in Forest, the woods of the Gang Bang Forest.

Gang Bang Forest aims to show video- works questioning identity and sexuality from a queer and non- normative point of view; pieces that cross the global narrative of an impostor/fctional forest in the Forest neighborhood. The proposal of an alternative story of an impostor forest in the neighborhood of Forest emphasizes and explicits, ironically, this always interested and partial representational construction that we call norm or History.

An otherness that speaks of itself, which questions the essentialist assumptions and claims that this representation we call reality has been created by dominants. Here dominates propose a view over an alternative reality, accentuating the creating process of the institutional one, not aiming to set up as/in a unique model of representation.'

ANNA RYON AND MY NEW BLUE/BLONDE HAIR

My friend and housemate Anna Ryon took these pictures of me in my room. Since I moved to my new place, Anna has become one of the people I spend most of my time with. I look forward to Sunday, when we often go to buy vegetables at the local market; browse our favorite shops; drop by the film-rental store; then go home to prepare dinner/desert (Anna's brownie's are one of the best things I have ever tried!); then we stay up late to watch movies with Sam and Stefan.

Anna is from Seattle, Washington, she's 19 and has been in London for approximately the same time as I have. She's doing an Art Foundation Course at Camberwell College of Arts. She always has her 35 mm Leica with her, at the ready, and I think that's why she takes such spontaneous pictures. Anna rules, and her pictures do too!



All pictures by Anna Ryon. Much more in her blog.

♥♥♥ DASHA LOVE for VICE Style


A few days ago Dasha took some pictures of me for 'Isn't she lovely?' at VICE Style. Recently we changed positions: this time I was the photographer and she was a VERY LOVELY model styled - as I was too- by our friend Ali Carman.
