This event has ended.

Home Theater is an exploration of domestic spaces in which specific areas have been designed, decorated, and outfitted for sadomasochistic sexual activities. The images grew out of the artist's personal experiences in which he solicited people on internet sex sites, ultimately gaining their confidence and being invited into their homes. Slovenc's interest lies not only in the physical convergence of living and performance/recreational spaces, but in the questionable dichotomy of roles assumed by the participants as they move from one arena to the other. He states, "I am intrigued by the 'scenes' that people construct in their homes with all their semiotic referents not just to their individual pleasures but, more importantly, to the ones that are socially prescribed. After the sadomasochistic act is over and the 'performers' step into the domestic space, the question remains: Do we cease acting or do we merely exchange scripts?"
