Shawn Bush - Between Gods And Animals
Inspired by personal experience and present-day revelations, Shawn Bush’s ‘Between Gods and Animals’ addresses the forthcoming shift in the definitions and politics of gender through the lens of a culture in flux. The series reflects the pursuit by straight white American men to sustain power and their inability to live by their own set of codes. In a culture where patriarchal structures are eroding, the struggle to maintain the influence, control, and liberties of bygone days remains constant for their imagined empire. For Bush, the dismantling of historical icons and everyday definitions of virility mark a timely subversion to the outdated socio-political hierarchies embedded in social myths of the West.
