Surface Attention. Space, Bratislava 13:07:10

Raw footage of a live performance of Surface Attention at Space Gallery in Bratislava.

This industrial building, formerly used for coal storage, has been whitewashed into the ostensibly neutral space that characterizes the contemporary art gallery. The performance focuses on the idiosyncrasies of the architecture, namely the large black ramp that marks the buildings history. The female performer - also marked as erotic body by her black lingerie - spreads her body across the surfaces and structure of the iron framework. Investing her desires in the cold and inanimate, she raises questions in relation to her own vulnerability as object through the absurdly perverse and erotically ridiculous.
