...it’s fine, our desires just operate in different directions,
like i want to embarrass the audience and you want to embarrass yourself
Give me what I want and then leave me alone is a collaborative installation comprised of moving image, song, photography and written and spoken text. Both artists approach the erotic from differing perspectives; love, consent, sentimentality and technology recur in the work like hauntings. In this exhibition my works exist as different tactics with which to approach the question of how to re/build, through both making and consuming, an erotic identity. The exhibition is a part of both of the artists' MFA theses for Kuvataideakatemia.
Exhibited 6.4. - 15.4.2018 at Project Room, Helsinki
