“Queer is a continuing moment, movement, motive–recurrent, eddying, troublant. Keenly, it is relational, and strange.”(1)
The exhibition "A Strong Desire" explores body politics and the commodification of relationships and sexual identity whilst living under a capitalist regime. The exhibition sets out to challenge heteronormativity and toxic masculinity by presenting artworks that present a kind of deterritorialization from this – through reevaluating power structures, slipping through the cracks of gender constructs, and for some, ultimately escaping the material body altogether through dreams, fantasy, and altered states of mind.
