Beau McCall

American (b. 1957)

Joey aka Ericka World I, 2020
Collage printed with dye sublimation on aluminum

Number 1 in an edition of 3. From the book and series, REWIND: MEMORIES ON REPEAT.

Here, McCall pairs a photo of Joey (left) with an image of Joey’s drag persona, Ericka World (right). Remembered by McCall as an aspiring politician and Dionne Warwick fanatic, Joey found inspiration in divas such as Warwick whose mannerisms he often mimicked. For Joey, Warwick reminded him of his mother and was the epitome of class and sophistication. Like many within the LGBTQ+ community, Joey had an admiration for a diva that was tied to memories of those we love and the characteristics we hope to embody.
