Andil Gosine engages with questions of humanism, queer theory, and animality to examine and revise understandings of queer desire in the Caribbean.
Nature’s Wild takes as its central concern anxieties about the line between human and non-human animals, and their management through the disciplining of sex. Artists duet with Gosine, or with each other and pairings in the exhibition include:
The premiere presentation of New York-based surrealist Sur Rodney (Sur)’s “Nipple Museum” – a three-decades-long project of “nipple sculptures” about his fetish, alongside a projection of the video Bathwater: A Sur (Rodney Sur) Story, made by Gosine, and Toronto-based artist Joshua Vettivelu’s etched glass sculptures made from white supremacist gay porn;
A selection of fifty watercolour works by London-based artist Angie Quick, made in response to Gosine’s text; (Quick will be performing her “Psychic Watercolors”
project at the exhibition’s opening on September 9);
