GNAT was invited to participate in the Chances Dances 10th Anniversary Exhibition: Platforms. Chances Dances is a queer dance party and collective dedicated to building safer spaces in Chicago since 2005. As part of WERQ: Embodying Queer Spirit, Gnat presented the models herself. As a femme dome in black, she led them around the stage, cuffed and clipped them into place using bondage furniture, and created a living tableau of queer fashion bondage LQQKS. HARD PANGS consists of leather and PVC harnesses, head-harness face bondage, translucent tops, small bags, panties and booty shorts, leotards, and a white nipple-clamp closure jacket.
Gnat was inspired by post-modern architecture, queer boi-ish silhouettes, swimming pools, memphis squiggles, queer quinceañeras, and paintings.
