Reflecting on male body ideals in a queer context. What do we do to achieve this, how do we experience the pressure to look a certain way and most importantly: WHY?! The work explores the tension between what goes into the body as a way to comfort and soothe ourselves and what we do to change, sculpt and train our body. Presented in May of 2022 for the art festival artspring 2022 as part of the exhibition "Curatorial Part de Deux - Artists of the Working Arts" curated by Franziska Harnisch and Mirjam C. Wendt.
