“un/binding desires” develops the idea of “marginal desires” and displays images of bondage as an expression of queer difference. These images accompany the audio based conversations with queer migrants and queers who explore their parents’ histories of migration while speaking about their own desires. By destabilizing the accessibility of U.S. history of migration through making a space for these marginal desires and literally re-reading such history, this piece invites you to question the ways in which migration and desire are usually represented.
"un/binding desires" is intended to be experienced as a video installation with parallel screens opposite to each other inviting the audience participants to engage aurally and visually to negotiate the experience of having to turn their backs to certain bodies, images, and stories in order to interact with both screens.
