Edouard Levé - Pornographie


While employing the established language of filmed sex the scene evokes the absent, the subjects’ faces hidden just as their sexual organs are


Explanation is withheld also. Clinically cold and bland, the environment is stifling to even regard, the characters appearing profoundly alienated even as they mock intimacy.

Reduced to the almost abstract, and lacking eroticism, the situation plays on the inherent absurdity of human sexual scenarios.
