borrowed intimacies is a presentation of new works examining various layers surrounding queerness, failure, allegory and intimacy. Using the oft-used bedroom as a starting inspiration point, the works occupy an installation wherein the public and private meld. The glass case, a metaphor for the closet, litters the space where audiences are invited to partake in the intimacy afforded by various sites and locales. A waft of quiet melancholia permeates the space as one intuits it affectively.
A combination of drawings, clay objects and video, the works intermingle in various disarrays. Hidden meanings take over articulative language, orientations take over text, and objects function as desires. The inability to articulate manifests in different forms, from visual to textural, auditory, and experiential.
