NOCTURNE! is an exploration of cruising as well as an intimate portrait of the absent queer body. Using wood, found pornographic material, and abstraction as an invitation to encounter. Soaked within a kind of pitch black, those men exploring the dark with a desire to encounter another, the duality of pleasure and panic; sex and death; the bodies of men at the edge of disappearing. A looming intimidating form there is nervousness in approaching but a desire to encounter. Arouse and beware.
