Decadent desire haunts them
January 10, 2017
With dollhouses as with lovers, some open in the front, and some open in the rear. Which way do Richard Hawkins’s haunted dollhouses open? Maybe they don’t open; maybe they open in ways no dollhouse has ever done before. They’re gay and more: transvestite, transgendered, between and beyond genders. Decadent desire haunts them; in turn, they expose and exaggerate desire and its seemingly supernatural powers.
In dollhouses, boys are always toys.
