POV: Pornification/Objectification/Validation by Eugene Tang & Pussy Grime
This improvised performance duet is a marriage between Eugene Tang and Nikki Telegan’s work where they intersect at the question and consequence of the gaze. Who’s gaze, they ask, is relevant/irrelevant? Who in this dynamic possess power and control? Whose positionality do we reckon with when we employ the edges of the viewfinder frame in our decision making for capturing an erotic energy, a fleeting exchange, a moment in time? What happens when the subject and author shapeshift between their roles fluidly, interchangeably, without any regard for narrative, intention, or function? Transgressing the lines between subject, object, camera, human, flesh, and lens.
