"Sext" is a photographic exploration into the use of modern technology as a visual language to describe desire. For one night only, I am showing a selection of sexts that I created and sent to an anonymous recipient in New York over the course of the past nine months. What started out of sexual restlessness grew to become a consuming ritual of photographing myself in a way that described my desires, the symbolism of lust, and the expectation of reciprocated arousal. The result is a collection of photographs created within the confines of the camera phone and immediately available environment- stylistically ranging from my personal approach as a creative photographer to satisfying my partner's requests for "less artsy more strip club."
about the show:
Now Next Neologists is a performance art centric event curated by New York based artist, Angelina Dreem. Neologism is a newly coined term, word or phrase. The showcase will display Los Angeles' emerging artists-in-motion, those that are ambiguous to genre or categorization, accidental linguists subverting Merriam-Webster, sharing indefinable attitudes from a subtle network of mutually understood discourse. 1052 South Olive St. Downtown, Los Angeles 6pm-midnight.
The event will feature performances and work by Isaac Ladesma of Moustache Mondays, an immersive environment by La Porscha, scream-meme star Jake G Thompson aka OKStupid, new prosthetic experimentation by West; a photography project titled SEXT by Logan White; Indigo Orangutan Gospel of Genesis interactive installation, and video art by FutureEyes.
The event will also feature a showing of Actually Huizenga and Socrates Mitsios' controversial erotic video, SoftRock, at 8pm. Live music by Teams. Djing throughout the night by 333Boys and Dethy Qunt.
Hosted by Labanna Babalon, the woman that brought #WHORESHIP to MOMA/PS1.
