Untitled (shaving performance, 2010)

2010-2014
Single channel SD Video, color, sound, 16:21 min. Made in collaboration with Katherine Hubbard.

Untitled (shaving performance, 2010) is a document of a privately held performance, in which Hubbard used a straight razor to remove the hair from the lower half of my body. The work looks at how desire, intimacy and fetish operate for queer woman through a re-staging of images found at the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco of a gay men’s fetish dungeon in the 1970’s.
