He just told me about a body whose needs cannot be reconciled within the culture in which it lives. Away from that culture, here, the needs come forward.

It was a difficult situation; I was aware of how much we had in common, yet it’s not something that can be put into words for someone who hasn’t yet felt it. It’s something embodied, but to be closeted is precisely to experience a disconnect between your body and your language. You can’t find the language to describe prohibited desire within a culture which prohibits desire.

By formalizing the ways in which objective conditions and subject demands inform and change each other over the course of its own making, a work of art expresses both process and instant at once, and illuminates their interdependence precisely in their irreconcilability. And it is as a consequence of this inner development that art becomes what it truly is: a tense and dynamic representation of what it takes to determine the course of one’s own realization and shape the material reality from which this self-realization emerges. In other words, whatever the content in whatever the form, art is only ever interested in appearing as one thing: freedom.
