Viewing the family as a perverse engine of discovery and intimacy, my art probes the visibility of sexuality. My work conjures a queer reading of Freudian familial dynamics and highlights the act of seduction. First, I propose a project to my family. Once agreed upon, we begin the process of luring our friends into the action, asking if they too would like to extend an invitation to their own mothers, daughter, etc., thus making my art a sexual “role play” amongst extended family.
