Infinite Love

Owen Leong

Infinite Love depicts the artist with his mouth kept forcibly open with a dental retractor, as a heart made of frozen milk melts and drips whiteness into his open mouth. This video portrait subverts our relationship to the corporeal through the abject, to disrupt body language and break behavioural codes, exploring the passage between perceptual and physical thresholds of the body. Visceral, ambiguous and poetic, the transformation of the body through fictional selves opens up a space for new identities to come into being.
