22-24 May, 2015

Explorations of the pornographic image through the lens of humour and indirect representation. The genitals disappear, multiply, become abstract… They are no longer the centrally perceived eroticism of the bodies. The image draws us into its deception, but its content continues to excite. Are the images essentially perverse or do we pervert the image? The works are displayed in unexpected places and ways in order to catch us by surprise.

ARTISTS: Ingrid Berthon-Moine, Daniela Comani, Cécile Emmanuelle Borra, Stefania Gagliano, Sadie Memphis Hennessy, Lora Hristova, Christa Joo Hyun D’Angelo, Claudia Rossini aka Yamada Hanako, Alice Tatge
