Moist is a tear-stained face, a risky proposition, a plea for empathy. Moist revels in the fluidity of sexual identity. In these tender transgressions beats the heart of the world.
Moist is about ‘the trespass sweetly urged,’ as Shakespeare wrote. To love is to be brushed by the wings of madness and to suffer the pangs of the impossible in moments of jouissance. A confluence of energies sublime will transcend our differences as barriers keeping us apart evaporate in a halo of bliss.
You know what I want now.
This is no ordinary love.
There’s nothing like you and me.
Painting, drawing, collage, assemblage, sculpture, photographs, videos, performance art and displays of fashion are all invited. The opening night of the exhibition will be a gathering of the tribes, a launch party for the enticing Moist catalogue of accepted works.
Moist casts a look at sensuality, sexuality and eroticism in today’s art, giving free reign to desire.
