It after reading baudrillards discussion of the hyper real, or porn, of obesity, of sex, or seduction, and the object, that for the first time I was able to formulate to myself how much my own work dealt with the explorations of the real, and this is an enormous part of what I do as an artist reinstill and explore the real. I sculpt to give a space for the real to unfold, I perform to give an inkling of what it might be like on the other side
There is no real, there never was a real. Seduction knows this and preserves its enigma
Seduction is fatal. It’s the effect of a sovereign object that recreates in you the original confusion and seeks to suprise you. Fatality, in turn, is seductive, like the discovery of a hidden rule. The discovery of a hidden rule is dazzling and compensates in advance for the cruelest loseses.
