Hiding in the Lights

In an alchemy of material and matter, Katrina Daschner stages queer structures of desire: architectural details, bodies, and materials are erotically charged and staged as fetishes, animate and inanimate matter melds with the women performing. At the same time, this eight-part, queer round dance presents, in a quote-like way, a journey through cinema’s origins in the culture industry, in vaudeville, chorus line, circus, and fun fair, as sites of staged visual pleasure.
