Dog Monster (BESTA)

‘Dog Monster (BESTA)' is an analogue divinatory machine from inside which a participant can pull out a card of an object found in a cruising space for pondering upon. It is an invitation to engage with queer sex utopias and an opportunity to question and expand on them.


‘Dog Monster (BESTA)’ is a creature that lurks in the dark and pulses with light to attract participants. It alludes to ‘whoring’ and the ‘slut’ as utopian practices as the creature repeatedly gets entered by strangers and makes us think about the hands that ‘fisted’ BESTA before us. Thus the artwork is also transported into the realm of queer monstruosity, disrupting categories and space. Participants ‘fist’ a monster and thus become monstrous - and queer - by appendage.
