I Do Me, 2012 (C) Mathias Vef

I’m happy to be invited to participate in this year’s GFEST – Gaywise FESTival, London’s annual LGBTQI cross-art festival around this year’s theme Myths & Mythology.

I will show a series of deconstructed bodies and the video ‘I Do Me’ on Body Modification. I see the body as a manifestation of the dynamic process that we call identity. I see the modified body as a focus of concepts of the will and the self and therefore a projection of modern myth around gay culture. Myths are not only the personification of concepts, forces or ideas, but also a form of the collective unconscious of a culture or a subculture.

I would be happy if you have achance to see the visual arts exhibition in Southwark’s Menier gallery where I will show my work along with artists such as Sadie Lee, Matthew Stradling, Gökhan Tanrıöver, João Trinidade, Jennifer Welton and Enzo Marra, who is showing his Francis Bacon series. Please check the GFEST WEBSITE for other events ranging from performances to, films screenings and debates.
