Amongst the latex and leather communities across Turtle Island and Europe, it is common to find fetishized clothing inspired by white colonizer iconography. Kilts, lederhosen, catholic paraphernalia, military and police uniforms... are all commonplace. Subverting power structures and surrendering to fantasy becomes problematic for me when I am faced with the iconography of my real-life oppressors.

Fruits of the Forest is an alternative to the stagnant and exclusive traditions present in leather and latex BDSM fetish communities. Deliberately avoiding colonial regalia, my sculpture, performance, photography, and video draw symbolism from forests, landscapes, and the playful and colourful environments that have surrounded me.

Let's explore a magical world inhabited by submissive queer fruit and the dominant forest spirits that watch over them.
