Boys don’t cry
Boys don’t cry is a series of videos produced for an exhibition at “Damage Playground” as part of Art WEEK Rotterdam 2014.
The work is a visual interpretation of the phrase “Boys don’t cry” with elements of comedy.
“Urine” shows a 3d scan of Neptune’s fountain in Bologna, Italy (Piazza del Nettuno) discharging bodily fluids at his face. Neptune is often assimilated with masculinity. Depictions of Neptune are usually a manifest of a powerful and indomitable character in Greek mythology. The artist is using 3D animation to manipulate gravity and liquids in order to ridicule what is considered as a masculine position for the male to urinate (standing).
