FAGGOTS: a PSBEUYS workbook

Andrew Zealley

"Faggots: A PSBEUYS Workbook" of the Toronto based artist Andrew Zealley’s is the culmination of his 2012 work with sticks, or faggots, he had collected with his Lover in the David Balfour Park. Zealley uses the word faggot to imply both the gay slur and its original meaning: a bundle of sticks.
“In my practice, the sticks are ritual ‘wands,’” he explains. “I gathered them in the woods during autumn equinox 2012. They are bound with leather and hemp twine and anointed with blood, ejaculate, bells and bobbles.”
