medvetánc [bear dance] : Savage 
December 21, Ubik/WORM, Rotterdam (NL)


Savage (photo)

from the series medvetánc [bear dance]
a striptease of labels, intersecting ethnicity, gender, sexuality, species – their imagery and power-relations


here, behold, the wonder, the splendour ...
fantasies, androgyny, Odalisque-passive power, personal desire,
loving Daddy Bear(s), ... and patriarchy?
close encounters of the hairy kind — you may touch

who is The Savage ?
and why ... ?




evening curated by Anthony Hüseyin
full programme


special thanks to Eltjo de Graaf, all at Ubik/WORM, Deborah Black,
