The pieces in this exhibition delve into the intimate relationship between bottles of poppers — small, ubiquitous objects in the LGBTQ+ community — and liberation. By expanding the scale of the bottles, I seek to transcend the diminutive nature of the object, focusing instead on the essence of freedom from inhibitions and looseness that it symbolizes. Poppers, utilized within the gay community for both unrestrained physical release and partying, serve as a metaphor for breaking societal constraints and embracing authenticity. The playful reinterpretation of this symbol of looseness opens a dialogue about personal liberation, encouraging a celebration of self-expression and a defiance against societal constraints.
