"Sex-Ed: Coming of Age", Performance by Matthew de Leon

NY Studio Gallery Performance: Sex-Ed:Coming of Age

Here are photos of my recent performance at the NY Studio Gallery this past Friday. These are not for children’s eyes.

Sex-Ed: Coming of Age
Duration: 1 hr 22 min
Performance
2010
In this piece I wear an all-white outfit in front of a projection of a heterosexual pornographic movie. While the movie plays, I attempt to fill the space of the female performer(s). The performance examines my exposure to straight pornography as a young gay man, and the early conceptions of sexual performance, identity, and body. Silly, desperate, and genuine, the character tries to find a space to belong, but ultimately does not fit in. Photos Courtesy Rebecca Curry.
