Mathias Vef (C) Destitute of Myself 7

This year’s GFEST – Gaywise FESTival, London’s annual LGBTQI cross-art festival is all about Myths & Mythology.

Adding to that from Berlin, Mathias Vef will show a series of deconstructed bodies and the video ‘I Do Me’ on Body Modification. To him the body is a manifestation of the dynamic process that we call identity. “I see the modified body as a focus of concepts of the will and the self and therefore a projection of modern myth around gay culture. Myths are not only the personification of concepts, forces or ideas, but also a form of the collective unconscious of a culture or a subculture.”

The visual arts exhibition is in Southwark’s Menier gallery along with artists such as Sadie Lee, Matthew Stradling, Gökhan Tanrıöver, João Trinidade, Jennifer Welton and Enzo Marra, who is showing his Francis Bacon series. Please check the GFEST website for other events ranging from performances to, films screenings and debates.
