"Anhelo explores the edges of intimacy through a series of explicit and sensual images. These works lean towards the darker side of erotica; a meditation on the poetry of queer desire. The photographic components of Anehlo are the first collaborative outcome from Matteo Cortés & Benjamin Sebastian. The moving-image piece is their second collaborative work, which premiered at London Porn Film Festival (2018) and subsequently at Berlin Porn Film Festival (2018), Vienna Porn Film Festival (2019) and Excéntrico Festival Chile (2021).
Curated by Benjamin Sebastian and Matteo Cortés.
Exhibition Design by Benjamin Sebastian and Matteo Cortés.
Anhelo was funded by Creative Folkestone and Roger De Hana Charitable Trust.
