Cabinet of Queeriosities

Cabinet of Queeriosities

The Cabinet of Queeriosities (2014) is a new body of work by Philippine-born, Toronto-based visual artist Julius Poncelet Manapul.

As a part WorldPride 2014, this artistic intervention spans three spaces of first floor of Studio 386 (386 Ontario Street, just south-east of the Church Wellesley Village) and consists of installation, sculpture, video projection, digital art, and mixed media works which interrogate the artist’s experiences of racialized queerness in the age of globalization and diaspora. Using visual vocabularies culled from visual cultures of the Philippines, abstracted gay pornography, and found everyday objects, Manapul constructs stunning hybrid creations that belie first impressions and challenge homonormative and heteronomative gazes.

Curated by artist and scholar Marissa Largo, this intervention includes an artist/curator talk that will provide opportunities to consider the experiences of queers of colour and artistic production in the midst of mainstream representations proliferated by the Internet and popular culture. The guided tour offers an up-close and behind-the-scenes look at Manapul’s exquisite, highly crafted works of art. In light of WorldPride, Manapul’s work asserts that queerness is not a universal experience, but is mediated by race, culture, and other subjectivities through the use of compelling and subversive visual strategies.
