Parallel Play utilises the elements of childhood playtime and humour to deconstruct the tropes and traditions of heteronormative notions of masculinity. Hamovit’s meticulously staged and surreal images are crafted from handmade objects and sets, forming a series of imagined alternate realities. The artist cleverly employs playful absurdity to challenge and reinvent traditional masculine ideals within his fabricated realms.
