 KARI SOINIO

Much of my art has focused on subverting traditional constructs of masculinity. Using myself as the model, I have sought to question received notions of manhood, the male body and the very act of viewing and seeing itself. I have been creating these images for more than twenty years, and my latest exhibition, the Domesticated Hero, continues to explore the themes addressed in my earlier series.

The Domesticated Hero presents my character, already familiar from my earlier works, in a new environment. Formerly pictured in natural and urban settings, he now retreats to the intensely private setting of the house and garden. The freedom and sensuality of nature is brought into the tightly managed and well-hidden domestic sphere. The home becomes an interior landscape, the reflection of a dialogue between masculinity and femininity, sexuality and sensuality. One moment we see our hero flirting with the camera, the next plunged into despair.
