    Ryan Brewer’s performance project Post-Paradise (Black Lodge Sweat) utilized pole dance and disparate occult practices within sculptural installation to assert a rhetoric that challenges notions of gender, identity, and expression, and complicates relationships between desire, shame, and power. 

    The project aimed to investigate notions of gender identity through the formation and performance of the artist’s sexual persona: a jockstrap-clad, bleach-blond playboy. Brewer’s body and physical ability were conditioned for skill, strength, flexibility, and endurance through a rigorous six-month period of professional pole dance training. He puts out. Or does he?
