Confessions uses a queer and liberatory lens to reexamine the legacy of Catholicism and its rich visual and haptic culture, positioning the body as a locus of both horror and desire. Confessions fuses the spiritual and the sensual, and seeks to create space for the ‘high-temperature visionary obsessions’ we are deprived of by secular society.

Taking its title from the long tradition of ‘confessional’ texts, from St Augustine’s Confessions and Yukio Mishima’s Confessions of a Mask to Madonna’s Confessions on a Dancefloor, the exhibition asks if it’s possible to find redemption through intimacy or articulate an erotics of transcendence.

Opening Reception
