Always a winner
Les Fleurs du Mâle by Steven Miller at Gallery4Culture
For the last 18 months I’ve been working on an homage and elaboration on Jean Genet’s seminal 1950 film “Un Chant d’Amour.” French novelist, playwright and political activist, Jean Genet (1910-1986), was openly gay and imprisoned multiple times for petty crimes and indecency. Representing the absolute opposite of what society considered permissible, Genet is celebrated as progenitor of the modern queer movement.
In Les Fleurs du Mâle, I constructed a prison that housed 42 men for my first video installation, Oubliette, alongside a dozen new photographs debuting here. I’ve meditated on what it means to be under constant surveillance and created elegies to the brutality and boredom of life in prison.
Please join me on Friday Sept 5th from 5-8pm at Gallery 4Culture in the TK Art Lofts.
The show is up Sept 5-26 and Gallery 4Culture is open Monday-Friday 9-5pm at 101 Prefontaine Pl S, Seattle, WA 98104
