Mette Ingvartsen
21 pornographies

  • Fri 17.11.17 20 h

›21 pornographies‹ is the fourth part of Mette Ingvartsen’s work cycle ›The Red Pieces‹ looking at the political dimensions of sexuality. Pornography today includes a politically wide range of expressions and uses, from queer and feminist stances to sexualized torture in war. Starting from the idea that pornography has permeated many areas of society, Ingvartsen explores its workings through a collection of erotic and emotive materials sampled from sources including film and literature. While most have little to do with explicit sex, they show certain characteristics of pornography such as expressions of cruelty, clinical precision, violence, pain, or equally, pleasure and excitement. By mixing physical action with narrative descriptions, Ingvartsen creates a speculative choreography that operates between different layers and intensities of sensual perception and imagination.
