In the course of this online meeting, artist Artor Jesus Inkerö and researcher Alfredo Ramos will reflect upon the artist’s work through an analysis of his videos; specifically, they will focus on an element that runs through the whole of Inkerö’s work: the representation of the different forms that masculinity adopts.
The meeting can be followed on the Casa Encendida YouTube channel. The videos will be available on the Casa Encendida Vimeo channel until 26 September.
- Swole (2017). (Length: 7 minutes.) Presenting a bodily transformation project that the artist develops by taking a deep dive into the culture of bodybuilding, where he delves into some of the subcultures of hypermasculinity.
- Bubble (2017). (Length: 18 minutes.) The artist explores how some of the norms of masculinity are projected and reproduced in leisure and wellness spaces in the north of the globe.
- JAB (2020). (Length: 8 minutes.) Through the marks that boxing leaves of the skin of the hands, Artor Jesus Inkerö discovers how the link between masculinity and the aesthetic of violence is created.
Artor Jesus Inkerö (Helsinki, 1989), is a graduate of the Helsinki Academy of Fine Arts, and currently lives in Amsterdam, where he has continued his training at the Rijksakademie.
