Title: 6 HOURS, 2017

6 HOURS  consists of 1 Hi-Viz  jacket (neon), worn during a 6 hour, 6 man orgy. The jacket remains unaltered and unwashed. The sex stains (blood, sweat, cum, lube, ass juice, piss, etc), act as indicators and remnants of said sex session.

To accompany the jacket, O’Ceallaigh has created 6 digital images in which he/the artist depicts and  reflects upon nature;  the aforementioned orgy.   Allowing himself a maximum of 6 hours to create the images – which accompany the jacket – 6 HOURS  is presented to the viewer as an altar; a place of pilgrimage, worship – where blood and flesh become bread (nature) and where he sees the light (neon).

Stiofan O’Ceallaigh (UK)

Currently working between the US and Europe, O’Ceallaigh is both an artist and curator, also founder of queer art project and collective Balaclava.Q.

Working internationally exhibiting mainly across Europe and N/S. America O’Ceallaigh’s focus is an exploration of the understanding of a queer aesthetic, if indeed, there is one. A personal journey and an acknowledgement of flux, O’Ceallaigh’s works seek to emancipate those who know it, simply by promoting discourse around areas such as HIV, queer art censorship, body politic and internalised shame/stigma>pride and fundamentally and effort to reduce hate … in all it’s forms.
