Desires III: (disclosure/disinhibition), is a play on the words “home“ and “homme,“ which means male in French. By starting with the domestic sphere, the photographic curtain alludes to a specific location within a home unit: the shower. The self-portrait was taken using a self-timer on a film camera staged in a bathroom. He explores the autobiographical aspect of his life through the obfuscation of the body that is synonymous with identity politics. In response to Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's call to “pluralize and specify,“ the work employs abstraction to demonstrate various modes of existence on the margins. He is able to communicate unauthorized desires and sexuality through an acceptable mode of art: abstraction resists scrutiny and surveillance.
