The Harvest

Mauricio Muñoz and Andrew Roberts collaborate for the first time to conceive The Harvest, a musical romantic comedy situated in an otherworldly and fantastical realm. In this project, they play a couple of gay ogres hiding and living peacefully in the woods amidst a land where segregation between magical creatures is the norm, taking the form of a video piece accompanied by a series of photographic portraits and sculptures.

Interested in exploring the Otherness present in the fantasy genre through its hierarchical system of magical races, the artists reclaim the figure of the orc as analogous to their own gender, sexual, and bodily identities. They insert their practice into Internet subcultures that relate to each other through post-human erotic avatars, recognizing in this the power of images as mobiles of desire and virtual forums as spaces of radical tenderness.
