TKG+ Projects is pleased to present (de)phallocentrism, a group exhibition curated by Chuang Wei-Tzu. Aiming to reconfigure notions of queer desire through image, visual narrative, sound performance, and folktales, this exhibition comprises works of artists Chang Yun-Han, Yang Yu-Chiao, Chang Wen-Hsuan, Liao Hai-Ting, Fan Yang-Tsung, Lu Hao-Yuan, Jian Yi-Hong, Huang Meng-Wen, Luo Jr-Shin, as well as three researchers from Cultime Co.: Tsai Yu-Chen, Chen Wei-Chen, and Chen Pei-Jean, to examine the fluid nature and hidden narratives of queer eroticism.
The theoretical framework of this exhibition lies in the psychoanalysis and social construction of sexuality. The exhibition’s Chinese title — which translates to “turning your back to the sun” — not only evokes the clandestine nature of queer eroticism, but is further linked to concepts of the phallus and phallocentrism in psychoanalytic theory. Conceptualized as a cognitive process, de(phallocentrism) is an attempt to explore states of queer desire, and how such desires can escape or bypass the dominant, masculine-centric order and re-establish a narrative of fluidity and heterogeneity. This exhibition contemplates, challenges, and deconstructs the erotic qualities denoted by symbolic order, ultimately presenting a multifaceted view of queer eroticism.
