The focus of this per­for­mance is to address and cri­ti­ci­ze the socio­st­ruc­tu­ral as well as poli­ti­cal­ly pre­de­ter­mi­ned ways of thin­king about and stan­dards for queer bodies, and at the same time to issue a chal­len­ge to tho­se who iden­ti­fy as queer by con­ti­nuing to oppo­se the socio­cul­tu­ral claims. On a more sub­t­le level, Del LaGrace also chal­len­ge the gene­ral public to accept and love the­se bodies. Thus, in their super­b­ly pro­vo­ca­ti­ve way, Del LaGrace invi­te us to enga­ge with the issue of resis­tance regar­ding queer bodies.Volcano ear­ned an MA in Pho­to­gra­phic Stu­dies at Uni­ver­si­ty of Der­by, UK in 1992 after stu­dy­ing pho­to­gra­phy at the San Fran­cis­co Art Insti­tu­te from 1979–81.
