Don’t Look at Me Like That, Zackary Drucker & Manuel Mason, Collaboration #3, Milan, 2010

Zackary Drucker & Manuel Vason

at Luis De Jesus Gallery

Performance/video artist Zackary Drucker and London-based photographer Manuel Vason have teamed up to create a series of self-reflexive and sometimes enigmatic images shot in Milan in 2010 during one of Drucker’s seminal performances. Drucker’s imagery does more than explicate transgendered identities; each of these photographs in some way expands the transgender dialectic to include, and indeed embrace, the compulsion toward violence, voyeurism and the interior space of the body versus the exterior space of public display and performance. Drucker utilizes performance as an explicit and coercive state of being where dominion over the artist’s own physical body is up for grabs. Be sure to see these stunning photographs before the show ends this weekend. Incidentally, Drucker has been chosen to participate in the 2014 Whitney Biennial.~Eve Wood
