BTM Live is a live sculpture-making performance where Park digs out a mass of clay to create a cavity and reveal the wonderous record of the movement and marking in front of a live audience. The movements, the sound, and the material have a resemblance to the sex practice of fisting, a niche sex practice that is practiced in the queer and wider kink community. Park will be in full Dom Leather Daddy get up. R18.

 I know what you are all thinking. Fisting clay? Why the f***? 

Queer sex practices and particularly ones that can be categorized as kinks and extreme have been largely portrayed by popular culture and mass media as sex practices that lack decency and morals. the images and portrayals are designed to stir disgust and fear in the larger population and have done so successfully, even our rainbow community has developed a hesitancy to make references or associate with these sex practices the groups that openly embrace them. Sexuality is what makes our community our community. And despite popular belief, in these sex practices, there are genuine communication, connectedness, kindness, respect, dignity, beauty, and love.

This live performance will explore the artist's attempt in talking about the sex experiences of the fringe communities within our colourful rainbow community and make art to suggest that these sex practices can be as beautiful as the process of art making and art itself.

The resulting sculpture from the performance will be replicated in the coming weeks with clay and an exhibition will follow where all the proceeds from the sale of the art works will be donated to Rainbow Youth, particularly with their initiative in supporting the homeless rainbow youth community.

Performance: Saturday 4th February 2023 8pm (approx 90 mins), Old Folks Association

Exhibition: Friday 24th February 2023 5pm, Audio Foundation
