Taking a critical view on the male as a subject and the social, political and cultural notions surrounding what it means to be a male, the transparent prints in XY* looks to question old notions of masculinity and to reclaim and unite a new masculinity in an era where men often divide themselves based on social pressures and gender expectations.
In this evolving process that began in 2012, I have collected anonymous ejaculation patterns from different cis-gendered men. Each of the men have differing sexual orientations (Heterosexual, Hetero-flexible, Bisexual, Homo-flexible, Homosexual). This particular showcase features four of the twelve prints in the entire collection. The collection continues to grow as I attempt to create an archive of the ever evolving complex male and the abstract gender politics that come with today's masculinity.
