Installation view: Accessories of Modern Men, 2016
Korver’s work is concerned with the way that different objects become gendered. These objects dialogue with a broad range of topics from leisure activities, interior design, fashion, art history, and nationality. In each case, he is concerned by the way that things become a metaphor for the self. He sees the current, flawed definition of masculinity rit large in the topics of our time and seeks to alter our notions of masculinity. In this way, his work is an argument for less prescriptive gender roles and tolerance of difference.
