Work In Progress...
This participatory work explores pornography and intimacy, by inviting partcipants to interact with hunks of clay whilst being directed by an erotic film. The instructions request attendees to allow their hands to mimic the gestures on screen and allow their own memories of desire to filter in, creating a collection of intimate companions.
In the next year, we hope to develop this project into a sort of collaborative online archive. Actions and desires in the form of surplus globs generated through these acts will be accompanied with object biographies, a chosen song and a personal story shared by the participant. We are curious what temporary release this repetitive act provides? Is it an elevation from boredom? A search for connection? Sensuality? Or does using pornography ultimately make real connection even harder to obtain?
