Queer Futures



A “Blind Call” is a hunting term—an “imitation” or “call” used to lure a target into space. Capezio presents work that plays with notions of visibility, invisibility, and queerness through camouflage, investigating visual paradigms of ‘nature’ and environments of desire.

Employing experimental and camp processes that harness play, parody and exaggeration, Blind Call riffs on hunting, camouflage and bro culture to examine how humans “try to co-opt nature and their inherent failure to capture and dominate the landscape.” The resulting work considers new links between queer bodies and the ecologies that surround them.

Blind Call is presented as part of the inaugural Res Artis x PHOTO 2024 Residency collaboration.
