Cameron Stalheim

The latest artist I’m obsessing over is Cameron Stalheim. His Myth As Object project has blown my fucking mind. I’ve never seen anything like his mythical merman. Stalheim cast gay porn star Colby Keller’s body in silicone to create his otherworldly sculpture and states:

I am questioning how people interact. Has sexuality become the basis of identity? Does shame and resentment associated with one’s youth create a fantasy of our expectations in connecting (and objectifying) with others and what role we play in those connections (or objectifications)? – Cameron Stalheim
