Asking For ItBy Alex Brew
The images show both domestic and private scenes of nudity bringing to mind a close relationship or one-night-stand - yet these men are strangers or acquaintances. No sex is on offer, no money exchanged. As the project went on, I wrote notes about it that became snippets to accompany the images. They were stabs at getting my head round what was happening to me that year. They masquerade as curatorial notes but are intensely personal. Each time I exhibit I tinker with these notes. They never seem quite right. A definite stand on the power relations between men and women never comes. I shift. Question.
