Poor Old Oss
1985: A Small Odyssey
My ongoing project uses performance and self-portraiture to deconstruct the myth of masculinity, binary sexuality and gender roles. The title derives from an element that at the right temperature and pressure can exist as two solids, a liquid and a gas, this is an analogy of fluid sexuality and is rooted in my personal experience. With this project I invert the male gaze, first to understand, then to re-frame masculinity to keep pace with an evolving worldview.
