He Wasn’t There – an exhibition by Hue Hale
Curated by Linda Toivio

Hosek Contemporary is pleased to invite you to the opening of Hue Hale’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.

“The conventional identity of a young man has always been unclear to me, the identity of a young queer man holds even greater mystery. I was born in Ireland on the cusp of homosexuality being decriminalised and although attitudes were changing and becoming more positive towards the LGBT community, I was raised with conflicting ideals. These ideals have had a direct impact on shaping my identity growing up. I was never taught about how same-sex relationships should function or how two men could love each other romantically.”

‘He Wasn’t There’ is a self-reflective document of key points in the lifespan and fallout of a codependent relationship. It is told through photography and video in three chapters, I: Moneylands, II: VIDEOBOY, and III: Las Américas. Through viewing each chapter in succession as a single narrative, the project shifts focus from the impermanence of a lover’s presence to that of the identity of the subject within the images.

Opening reception : Friday July 24, 2020, 6-10 pm
