OSCILLATING BETWEEN THE GUN, THE WOUND AND THE OINTMENT
Have you ever wondered what an orgy smells like? What is it about female sexuality that still feels so closed off, trying to reach for something intangible, explain the unexplainable? Is it that it seems to be ruled by mystery, by what’s being revealed and expressed and what’s intentionally hidden?
In collaboration with CYRE, this project has been an exploration of senses, with the starting point of the female orgasm, and the scent that is EROS. The sensuality, the energy, the lust, the memories, the wonder, the darkness, the power, the divine.
Collaborating with a full team and selection of emerging designers (Maroske Peech, Johannes Warnke, MØY Atelier ++) to portray Xiaoqiao Wang as the modern day EROS - the Goddess of love and passion, the film is a journey of energy going through her, us being the observers and the participants of lust and release. The poem is written from the perspective of a true romantic balancing on the edge of feeling blue, longing, sexual liberation, and self-love – with an ever-present ambivalence and nostalgia. In addition to the film and poetry, there is also a selection of stills to complement the project.
