  MARS Gallery presents new work by artist Hoda Afshar.

“Behold was made unexpectedly, and without design. I was travelling in a city that I sometimes return to, and I got to know a group of gay men,” says the artist.

“There, where they live, these men (and many others like them) are mostly left to be. But only on the condition that they lead one part of their lives in secret. Rarely, that is, do their bodies ever meet in open honesty outside, in public. Only here, in this bathhouse, where their desire to be seen and embraced by others – just to be and to be held – is played out the partial openness of these four closed walls.'
