Coming Out - Travel Tryptych



“Coming Out - Travel Triptych” is inspired by a classic format of sacred art for altar painting: the triptych. An easily portable format, very popular for praying while traveling.

In this case, the person traveling is the LGBTQ+ activist and the semantics and religious iconography leave room for what is sacred for the LGBTQ+ community: the right of expression and the freedom to love. The work is a travel icon that reminds us of the goal to fight for.

When closed, the object features an austere decoration of white lines on a black background.

Once opened it explodes into colorful graphics featuring two "kisses in movement" - a symbol of love and expression - and the text "out & proud".

“Coming Out - Travel Triptych” is a metaphorical object, an icon which with its “openness” represents coming out, a powerful moment and a sort of ritual for every individual belonging to the LGBTQ+ community.

The triptych was originally designed for Alexander Voronov, the exiled president of "Coming Out Russia", and donated to him by the artist on the main stage of Milano Pride 2022.
