Home Sweet Home (2020).
Print on aluminium, size varies.
Home Sweet Home is a small visual investigation of the interior settings of family-themed homoerotic pornographies. Making breakfast for step-sons in the kitchen; home tutoring from a step-bro after school; watching TV under the same blanket with the girlfriend’s dad… these hour-long temporary families perform love, care, affection (and more) in constructed domestic spheres that are often overlooked. What are the politics behind these astonishingly successful attempts to capitalise on family romance? How do sexual desire and material desire interact and flirt with each other? What makes a “home” a home, where stability, immovability, and warmth are deemed to be the primary credentials, sitting alongside vases, books, yoga mats and fake flowers?

I started browsing gay porno on Tumblr in my senior year of high school, dating back to 2013. It played an irreplaceable role in shaping my sexuality and exploring my identity from my late adolescence to early adulthood. After hearing the devastating news that all of the explicit content was going to be removed in mid December 2018, I wanked to my Tumblr “likes” as if it was the last time ever. It was romantic, yet perhaps more of a ritual. In the final days of the Tumblr porno era, we posted an open call to invite people to masturbate to their Tumblr, cum, take a photo of the cum and send it to us as a documentation of the collective online orgasm carnival, to in memory of this generational and cultural phenomenon.
