To celebrate this new year, SR Labo kindly invites you to experience the pleasures, fear, and mixed feelings of torture.
Untitled, 2009, work in progress, blood, ink on skin, 5x3,5cm
Seven instruments created by the artist will be used during her performance. Instruments will be felt but never shown.
Sculptures in their own right, these instruments will be exhibited to the public for the first time on Thursday the 14th of January, at 6:30 pm.
Through sensation, the visitor will experience the idea of torture in terms of pain and pleasure. This experience will vary depending on the instrument used and the visitors' personal background.
By simulating torture, SR Labo will subversively challenge the boundaries which seperate the victim and the torturer.
The interaction between participants and the artist will take place in a tent and will be kept secret.
During the performance, Doctor Davide Napoli will select participants and diagnose their needs and desires. He will then choose which instrument will be used with the participant and how it will be used.
We wish you an insightful visit,
SR LABO TAKES CARE OF YOU.
Nb: Dr D.Napoli et Dr S.Roshem (alias SR Labo) font partie de la ligne de recherche art & flux.
