I HEART BOY - Jessica Yatrofsky (US)
23 JUNE- 26 JUNE 2011
Kontorprojects are proud to present an exhibition by New York-based artist Jessica Yatrofsky
Internationally known for her photographic works with male subjects. While studying Art at the
University of Nevada Las Vegas, Yatrofsky first began to focus on the male form by
photographing male go-go dancers at local strip clubs.
She is the founder of iheartboy.com, a website dedicated to picturing young men in sweetly
provocative ways and is a regular contributer to eastvillageboys.com
Yatrofsky's artwork also includes performance projects in which audiences are confronted
with nudity and sexual politics, as well as films and videos that explore beauty, objectification,
and perception. She received an MFA from Parsons in New York City and has just published
her first monograph titled, I Heart Boy, with Powerhouse Books.
