Through the hand to the mouth explores the gesture of lighting a cigarette as a recurrent and coded motif occurring in gay cinema since 1950.
Presented in the atmospheric Old Billiards Room at Bundoora Homestead, this series of largescale prints continues Eaton’s inquiry into undisclosed homosocial histories, evoking the sensuality of these discrete exchanges.
