Matthew McGaughey’s work explores heteronormative masculinities and their hegemonic tendencies through the lens of personal history, media tropes, and dominant cultural practices. Using performance, video, narrative structures, and sound, his work creates scenarios of bifurcation and reconnection in order to reveal the unconscious social forces that inform dominant identities.
