The Purpose is Never to Fly
Through their work Joseph Morgan Schofield seeks to interrogate visible and invisible tensions, using ritual and mythic forms to articulate a language of desire and endurance. This new work exists in continuum with a series of performances including Yesterday I dreamt of Flying (2018) and (From the Shores of Pleasure) Bliss (2019). These works subvert the masculine tradition of ‘heroic’ suffering in body art, proposing difficult, troubling, experimental queer desire between and amid organic and inorganic structures as a strategy of communion. In this work, falling, flying, fighting and feeling speak to the complications of queer existence.
In the framework of Thessaloniki Queer Arts Festival (7-23 June 2019).
