SEXplay

SEXplay

Date: september 2020
Venue: Kurimanzutto

A show called SEX, just like the Vivianne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren store; just like the Madonna book from 1992. An obvious and ridiculous title, we know…but we were already talking about sex.

The show will be designed around three themes, three nearly independent shows, Holy Trinity style: SEXplay, SEXwork, SEXtrauma.

We speak of our lives because affection, pleasure and desire have been denied to us. Because our bodies have been fetishized and violated. We don’t mind being frivolous, self-referential and hedonistic. Leave straight art to talk about the bigger issues, let them talk about the universe since they control it already. Today, the art world seems to be interested in being inclusive. There’s big talk about racial issues, queer bodies, feminist politics; but the upper circles rarely look at the local scenes or include the precarious, the offensive, or what they consider bad taste. We don’t want to raise consciousness, we are just showing who we are: womxn, queer, trans* and diverse, who deserve love, sex, and happy endings.” 

 

SEXplay is desire, wanting to connect with others, fetishes, playfulness, roleplay, foreplay, internet genitalia, the creation of sexy.

Interested in digital imagery and our relationship with it, Lucas brings to the pictorical plane problems of digital culture and virtuality, in his work, images and the physical world exist in the same ecosystem.
In this painting, Lucas portrays one of his favorite subjects, the furry subculture, where costumes of anthropomorphic animals are used in different contexts including sex. Both fetish and escape, the Internet has fostered the growth of these communities and the possibility of socializing among them.

Furrymanzutto re-escenifica el mito creacionista de @salonsilicon desde lo furry re-interpretando su propia génesis en el momento donde los dioses del arte contemporáneo —mediante una orgía furra-cuasi-satánica— dirigen una revelación a lxs jóvenes que imponen modas.

Poco se sabe del contexto de los personajes involucrados, pero se supone que todxs estaban en PrEP.
