Skinheads Intimiacy and Loneliness Project by Matt Chaw
November 2, 2023 @ 18:00 - November 5, 2023 @ 23:30
A project of illustrations that speak of intimacy, loneliness, brotherhood and pain. All depicted through a journey of several digital images that illustrate the skinhead gay fetish scene, with portraits of known and unknown people and photographic frames taken from underground cult movies.
The beauty of a hidden intimacy, often characterized by a sense of loneliness and brotherhood. The strength of pain, at the basis of our daily routines. The importance of intimacy, of certain details, sharing moments with special people to be in tune with. The emptiness of certain queer eyes entering your heart helping you to come out for the second time.
Matteo Mena is an eclectic figure of the Milanese underground scene who focuses his creative and personal researches on musical subcultures with a particular predisposition to the English working class aesthetics between mod, skinhead, new wave and post-internet queer culture. His work as a shoe designer leads him to travel between Italy, Spain and the UK, absorbing different cultures and attitudes that make his sensitivity towards less exposed areas of society and new gender identities, multi-faceted and fluid.
