Sebastián Gherrë Rojas

 

Chilean documentary maker. Since 2006 he has produced a body of work in photography and video, guided by his obsession of apprehending the rawness of sex: when the body forgets the camera and becomes real, it expresses the drama of encountering with someone else. He has portrayed various body types in their everyday habitats, seeking to capture the desire in the pulse of the flesh and the intimate objects that accompany it. With these elements he has built the first latin gay-archive of male intimacy, documenting the sexuality of the new chilean queer generation in the 21st century like a life-diary.

 

Since 2018 part of his large archive is part of the private collection CA.SA. www.coleccioncasa.cl

He is currently working on his new solo exhibition, Mirror Touch.
