Adonis

Adonis

Gerwyn Davies (Highly Commended)

In an age of endless self-imaging, these works explore the expanded potentials to unmoor from conventional representation and accommodate a creation of an inventory of synthetic selves. Bodies are adorned and choreographed for the lens, their glistening, textured surfaces allure and entice while the heft of their costumes distort and conceal. This double bind of a figure both conspicuously produced for the lens while remaining nowhere to be seen, hidden in plain sight, triggers the work’s investment in queering representation and renegotiating the terms of visibility. Aligning with the excessive aesthetics of Camp, these works explore the potentials for performative self-portraits as queer cocoons, inside which, artists creatively redistribute their bodies to crystallise new formations.
