With Perversions come in all sizes, Christopher Lacroix continues his interrogation of the relentless effort of queer existence, one that both aspires to and rejects a normative system that makes deviant ways of being inadequate. This paradox of simultaneous aspiration and resistance is embodied in Lacroix’s unnerving performances, which maintain an uncomfortable balance between tragedy and melodrama. Rather than reproducing the pain that the normative system inflicts on others, his performances redirect the pain onto himself—his identity and his body. What results is a campy and queer masochism that explores abject self-deprecation as a means of self-preservation and resistance.
