Breve tratado sobre el Erotismo según Bataille.
Sculpture, assemblage, software and video. 2015.
This piece was created to Excusa Argumental exhibition at MAC (Contemporary Art Museum Gas Natural Fenosa A Coruña) curated by Ignacio García. 23 January - 15 March.
G. Bataille relates eroticism to the prohibition, transgression and the feeling of death. Mystic, sensuality, holiness and sacrifice.
Man builds a, planned, orderly, predictable world, away from the animal world, that adds security, but at times craves animality, the intensity of animal appetite, which is an image of freedom. However, the freedom that man pursues may no longer be around the appetite of the animal, since it has appeared consciousness (and in particular, the awareness of death), which distributes the possibilities of life between what is permitted and what is forbidden. This knowledge is inalienable and irrevocable.
Video and software designed in collaboration with Salvador Gutierrez de la Concha.
