JOS MCKAIN – More Pics Bro: The Grindr Ballet
September 19, 2014 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm PDT$15
Have you ever craved just one more shot?
The Grindr Ballet is conceptualized around GPS-based applications allowing queer-identified males to ‘hunt’ for sexual transaction. Grindr and social media have redefined queer communities by allowing the community to “cruise” across a vast number of selfies and nude photos, in place of organic modes of operation. The piece features an array of images, sounds, and performance in order to familiarize the world with this new phenomena and to keep the observer in the now. Using distilled archetypes, Jos McKain has conceived ritual structures to analyze the relationship between abstraction and reality, formulating the piece into a rite of spring, substituting masculinity for the sacrifice.
