The term “untouchable” is often used concerning beauty, disease, and/or class. Something desirable that is represented virtually, unreachable across time and space -as in art or in erotica- is also untouchable. Building on these associations, the Un_Touchable exhibition conjures a restive and conflicted state of mind, between longing and anxiety, drawing on, and responding to the mediatization of desire and disease.
The presented works circle the sense of uncertainty and deja-vu that connects pandemic times by using video, photography, installation and other means to create an imaginative, associative nimbus where memory, imagination and speculation can converge in a free-floating way. In Un_Touchable, the works are given an open, respecting framework that gives free rein to the various works’ individual concerns, strong aesthetic and sensory impact. The joint emanations of the various artistic positions may evoke a poignant, and thoughtful state of mind.
Un_Touchable is a part of a recurring exhibition series that is dedicated to exploring the mediatization of sexuality, coinciding with the Berlin PornFilmFestival. Responding to the current pandemic, the project is extended into the virtual realm with online manifestations such as virtual artist’s talks, video interviews, and social media projects addressing the increasing needs for accessibility and human connection.
