Erotic Heterotopia：Manipulating Queer Force within Yu-pin Huang’s Ink Art
contemporary ink art
The promotion of sex/gender and erotic issues has been a continuous effort by countries all over the world in terms of education, concepts, or human rights. Contrary to popular belief, pornography can often serve as a tool for personal exploration and self-reflection, breaking down and loosening the confines of conventional sexuality and gender. This article is a study of pornography, sex, and gender, with my artworks being the main target of investigation, to find the queer force within the artworks. This paper will be divided into six chapters: The first chapter is about the establishment of research methodology and boundaries as well as the definitions of the terms used in gender studies. The second chapter mentions the scenarios in which sexual liberation occurs, using explicit nudes and erotic materials in the artworks to explore the formation of sexual stratification, and elucidating queer force and gender performativity. The third chapter reviews the works of the queer body, identity, and space in foreign contemporary art and its attempts to analyze alternative tastes for a modern audience. Then, it applies the topic through some Taiwanese exhibitions and refers back to the focal point in the sex/gender litreture. The fourth chapter is a discourse on the author's creative methods. With the camp aesthetic and grotesque elements of the process, a discussion regarding the relationship between creation and sex can be made. The fifth chapter is a commentary on the author's works, observing the dynamic between personal experience and the content of the research, and how well it interacts with relevant contemporary issues. The sixth chapter concludes with a reflection on modern outlooks of pornography, sex, and gender, and a personal hope that I will be able to maintain my creative energy when dealing with such topics in the future. Due to the sexual phobia of the general public, most people still hold discriminating and prejudiced views regarding pornography, sex, and gender, which is evident in the social stigma and malice shown towards those who refuse to abide by imposed societal conventions. This paper aims to analyze myself with literature review and creating artworks, which also serves as a guide towards self-acceptance, aids in the self-identification within LGBTQ communities, and meanwhile, finds ways to understand the individual differences and social tolerance.
