Abstract

While myths of beauty and ideas around body shape, fitness, even obesity are hotly debated in mainstream culture, some people have found acceptance in new movements, formed new alliances and set in motion new ideas, they are "LOVED." LOVED is a globally touring gallery collaboration between two artists, visual artist Charlie Hunter and sound designer and filmmaker Mike Wyeld. LOVED is an exploration of (sexual) identity. Hundreds of audio Interviews, composed score, found sound and archive sound has allowed us to build up an important, thoughtful look at masculinity in the 21st Century, from a group of men (including trans-men) who are rarely equivocal about their views on the world.  How does the material conjure echoes on masculinity and its toxicities. The problem, of course, is men. How do they sound?
