Kelvin Burzon Thesis Exhibition: Noli Me Tangere

Kelvin Burzon is a Filipino artist currently in the final year of his MFA studies at Indiana University's School of Art + Design. His thesis work investigates an existential inquiry of living as a Catholic Homosexual. It is informed by the imagery, theatrics and opulent rituals experienced while growing up engulfed in a Filipino Roman Catholic culture. This series of photographs merge essential yet contrasting sides of the artist’s identity and allows an engagement in a nostalgic and playful practice. Utilizing borrowed religious imagery and language; the work is recontextualized by the insertion of LGBTQ members, friends and family posing as Catholic deities.
