Bio

    Fagner Bibiano is a teacher of Fine Art and Photography in London. His practice-based PhD research explores how photographic representation mobilises desire through the gaze. Informed by the work of Jacques Lacan, the research investigates what it might mean 'to come out' through photographic practice, considering aspects of secrecy as activators of desire in looking.

    Fagner's research begins by exploring the notion of the obscene according to the Greek etymology of the term on ‘skene’ (meaning ‘off-stage’), where actors perform violent parts of Greek plays out of sight from the audience. The work takes this notion and explores places in London where anonymous encounters take place out of the 'public’s sights’, such as sex shops, newsagents, gay bathhouses, sex clubs and a public toilet.
