Emerging Canadian art outfit
Virginia Puff Paint, composed of Jeremy
Laing and Will Munro, revel in homo-erotic
desire and perversion. Their lush performances offer a counterpoint
to the hetero-normative issues (i.e. marriage) that have focused
mainstream gay discourse of late. In Inside the Pavilion
of Virginia Puff-Paint (2004), both artists don costumes
covered with ornate orifices and removable, conical protrusions.
Assuming different positions in their sumptuous tent, the two enact
seemingly endless possibilities for penetration, until they collapse
in an intimate tangle on the pillowed floor.
