Parties are a privileged place, a space for exploration, a time for fusion.
Skin, saliva, sweat, sometimes an overdose of it – it’s the moment when sexual tension is opposed to a feeling of loneliness, and both are symmetrical and equally strong. When different social classes, sexes, ages, gather to seek human connection and loopholes in their own consciousness and social behaviors. When they can abandon themselves in the middle of a crowd, loose their inhibitions - but in the end the experience is personal, and often self-serving.
Through this work, I explore the profound desire my subjects have to escape from their regular selves. I observe the things that reassure me - human contact, tenderness - but also what scares me - dissociation, madness.
