Medium of Desire: An International Anthology of Photography and Video

Curated by Peter Weiermair

 

Using human beauty, desire, Eros, and sexuality, this new photography based exhibition reveals that cultural differences, whether defined by national borders, sexual orientation, or gender identification, can be simultaneously vast yet familiar. Regardless of one’s sexual orientation or country of origin, feelings of desire, when successfully represented, can serve to minimize our differences and bring us closer. By using the theme “desire,” this exhibition draws together the work of fourteen contemporary artists from China, Japan, Greece, Russia, Holland, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, and the U.S., as expressed through the medium of photography and video.

Opening Reception: Decmeber 18, 6 - 8 pm

Sidney Mullis

 

In the Mating Ritual Series, artist Sidney Mullis performs as invented animals to build a domain of alternative biology and culture. Interested in what constitutes “sexy,” Mullis’ video series stems from studying rap music and videos that instruct women how to perform their sex appeal. This media’s lyrics, which is evocative of mating rituals for contemporary culture, often directs women to “push it,” “shake it,” or “wiggle, wiggle, wiggle.”

With these performance-based videos, Mullis portrays invented genders to understand how woman is realized and, furthermore, performed. This proposed kingdom, however, is not suggesting itself as something to be strived for. It is a visual playground to speculate boundaries of gender performance in the present and for the future.
