LON Gallery presents Beach Boys, an exhibition of new work by Jeremy Eaton. In Beach Boys, Eaton presents a series of prints, drawings and sculptural elements that loosely retell Edmund White’s first novel Forgetting Elena through imagery gleaned from a series of queer 8mm films from the same period of the novel (1960s and 1970s). The exhibition engages with experimental artistic films, erotic films and home videos to collage vignettes influenced by Edmund White’s mannerist and surreal narrative.

Recalling a time when queer visibility was becoming more prominent, the exhibition looks at love, poetics, eroticism, and the newly awakened consciousness that precipitated a period of experimentation. This creates a narrative flow to immerse the viewer in a textural series of washed out coastal imagery.
