CAVERNOUS (publication) is a living queer archive led by artist Young Joon Kwak and Mutant Salon, a collective of queer-trans-femme-POC artists. CAVERNOUS shares the members’ stories navigating arts institutions as marginalized artists alongside tales of gender affirmation and more. In doing so, this project documents the fullness of queer lived experiences through the imaginative fractures in white heteropatriarchal hegemony, with all its alternative bodies and performances of existence and desire. CAVERNOUS is an ongoing critical deconstruction of how we view our bodies, and reimagines alternative forms of existence and desire through sculpture, installation, performance, wigs and more.
