The unique tension between public and private found only in bathrooms has long intrigued me as a site for art and activation. Because solitude is expected, any lack thereof is palpable. This installation turns expectations on their heads, envisioning the bathroom as a vibrant social space where everyone belongs. As a non-binary artist, most bathrooms are not designed to fit me. This transformed bathroom stakes a claim on this politicized space and envisions a world free from gendered confines.
WANTS EVERYTHING WANTS NOTHING is populated with sinuous, genderless people, bound by the ecstasies and agonies of desire. The mural explores the politics of possession and love amidst a collision of anxieties surrounding climate change and addiction to decadence. However, it also revels in that excess, and the fleeting bliss that it can bring. In the words of Grace Jones, “scary, but fun!”
