Looking for 18 White, Hairy Participants

Hello, I'm SJ, a multidisciplinary artist currently living and working in Ukrainian Village, Chicago.

I'm looking for 18 white participants with chest hair for the new iteration of my project "Temporal Chest Hair" funded by the Franklin Furnace Fund. This work will be showcased in NYC in the 2nd half of 2022.

Initiated in 2018, “Temporal Chest Hair” is my ongoing practice examining the relationship between fetish, race, and gender. Focusing more on race, the upcoming iteration will record the interactions between myself and 26 different white participants, whose first names begin with each letter of the alphabet, one by one. I have already filmed with people from A, B, C, J, L, N, T, and Z groups so people outside of those groups are welcomed.

An hour-long session is composed of two activities; I will shave the participant's chest and abdomen for 30-40 minutes, and then the participant will glue their harvested hair onto my chest for the rest of the session. The time for each service depends on the amount of hair. You can get a glimpse of the session through this video.

Filming date and site will be negotiated. Ideally, I plan to finish filming before July at various sites (i.e. studio or residential spaces). Participants will be compensated for their time and resource. $40 per session!

Thanks so much for your interest in my project! Feel free to spread the word!
