Experiments with the dynamics and potentialities of extending the BDSM subculture into the public/urban arena 

  • Switzerland
  • 2016

Αισιοδοξία, 2018 / My pain, your thrill, 2018

Playing with the practice of mummification since 2016, the collective brings the sexual practice of a specific subculture into general public attention. The spectacle of dehumanized mummies serves as a screenshot of a frozen society where beings are deprived of their recognizable features. By developing elaborate methods of mummification, the collective experiments with the subversion of gender-specificity. While a shared sexual energy permeates the collective’s dress code and social interventions, the public mummies highlight the perpetual de-sexualization and normalization of fetishes in the post-Internet world. In Athens, the collective plays with the perception of love in the old age. Couples of different age and sexual orientation are mummified on pedestals and benches.
