Lay your conditioned mind to rest
Boyname is beckoning you under their skin. In the fluidity of their body, the fester of old wounds, and the grace of torn petals – theirs is a sermon of self-loathing and self-love.
Feel your social conditioning disrupt on this visual journey, where each painstaking minute is curated by delicate, unflinching hands. The same hands that held the gun. Come, Reconcile.
This work by the illusory Boyname is held in collaboration with experimental movement artist, Bobby Russell (WALK), sound by Peter McAvan (Midnight Elevator Records), design by Tia Tokic and Lauren Jane Salt (Volim), and creative producer, Samantha Martin (Get Well Soon). Reconcile melds alien movement with sensual vulnerability.
