SPOTLIGHT: Myth As Object by Cameron Stalheim

"Stemming from my experience as a gay male from the Midwest and transitioning into the gay culture of the east coast, this sculpture, the first in a new series of work, questions the relationship between fantasy, reality and the objectification that happens in between."

Casting gay porn star Colby Keller’s body in silicone for a monumental sculpture, Stalheim created this mythical beast for his MFA graduating thesis at the Maryland Institute College of Art. 

I am questioning how people interact. Has sexuality become the basis of identity? Does shame and resentment associated with one’s youth create a fantasy of our expectations in connecting (and objectifying) with others and what role we play in those connections (or objectifications)?
