nightsweats, poetry and illustration after thom gunn
nightsweats, poetry and illustration after thom gunn (2020) the first art book/zine edited by Guillaume Vandame featuring twenty emerging and established international artists, writers, and creative individuals.
At times, nightsweats is intoxicating. It is truly an erotic experience and goes through hard-edged realism and the act of cruising into a hallucinatory, psycho-sexual fantasy and returning to reality as the high wears off, drinking a cup of coffee as if nothing has happened.
"I was interested in these exterior and interior worlds and the book embodies these complex ideas rather than purely represents them, ultimately questioning what it means to be queer and express same-sex or other intimacy today."
The full list of contributors includes Sunil Gupta, Anthony Iacono, Enzo Marra, Joseph Ridgeon, Julia Calver, Adriann Ramirez, Joseph Winsborrow, Rosemary Cronin, Sandra Guerreiro, Zack McGuinness, Anthony Gorin, Robert George Sanders, Mr Fat Plastic, James McDermott, Antonis Sideras, Louis Glazzard, Frances Whorrall-Campbell, Faust Luo, Tim Millin, and Kathy Bruce.
