ERI AND BENTON // KARIN’S INSTILLATION OPENING @ 5th WALL GALLERY
This instillation, composed entirely of sexual confessions, bares proof of our unintended sexual similarities. Karin asked a group of Vegas kids (all around their mid 20’s) to speak anonymously about their sexual endeavors, in return for their anonymity, she asked nothing but honesty. Our friends confessed our disturbingly intertwined love lives, both physical and metaphysical (but let’s be honest, mostly physical.) The results were beautiful and revolting. The instillation was presented with code names and vague distinction, all pieces of paper connected by colored string. A tape recorder was placed in the corner of the room expelling conversations amongst the participants about their private sexual experiences, the feeling of physical love, the desire of lust and that ultimate feeling of warmth that we all chase.
