Queer Time | 13″round | Snajdare, Acylic | 2021
I construct text-based works and absurdist home furnishings to explore queerness, the act of labeling and the commodification of identity. I’m thinking about the rainbow crusted shirts, logos, knick-knacks, (or in IKEAs case) couches, that pop up every June as a half-baked, but all too successful, attempt at appealing to a queer audience. I’m bringing a sense of levity to the commodification of queerness because despite the fact that the last two years have been the deadliest years on record for the LGBTQ+ community, I remain convinced that the ability to find humor and joy — and there is a lot to be found — in a queer existence despite the insurmountable hatred queer people are confronted with daily is a radical and utopic act.
