Stiofan O'Ceallaigh
2021, Digital Collage (GIFs), Online Exhibit

"During the UK Covid-19 lockdowns the artist kept a daily visual diary in the form of digital collages or GIFs. HOMOPERSPECTIVES contains selected extracts from the visual diary.  Each individual GIF reflects upon themes such as mental health, the virus, love, sex (be)longing, (in)visibility, (im)possibilities and the day-to-day. The male figures in this series were extracted from pre-1950s photography, vintage gay porn and the works of Bob Mizer and Tom of Finland to name a few. What’s most notable about these works is how the male figures function changes from the erotic(-objective) to a more emotive context."
