HD video, color and black & white, stereo, 07:35 mins, loop
Shifting between surface and interior, "Ecstasy, Anguish and other Excesses" addresses certain physiological and psychological states within the realm of erotic activities. Digging into Bataille's concept that "there is ecstasy to be found in what we fear the most", this work enters a space inhabited contradictory sensations; pleasure, trance, violence, horror. At times gentle and seductive, at others visceral and menacing, "Ecstasy, Anguish and other Excesses" evokes perceptions that fluctuate between materiality and nothingness, creating a landscape on the border between representation and abstraction where human and animal bodies exist as limitless erogenous spaces.
