Sex, Lies and Videotapes, 3’03”, black & white & sound, 2009


It will probably strike the average viewer as irredeemably degenerate, maybe even perverted, since voyeurism is still considered aberrant behavior. But as far as this film is concerned, that’s the appearance, not the reality. Whereas the drama revolves to a certain extent around the voyeuristic masturbation of an impotent man, the heart and soul of the film is an unrelenting, hard driving psychological siege on the biggest erogenous zone of all: the brain.

This film is about sex. But it’s not about the frothy swapping of fluids and feelings. It’s about honesty, without which one can’t have intimacy, which is to sexual stimulation what the water valve is to the hydrant. From beginning to end, we see this theme brought into focus by the dramatic contrast between two different relationships – the one based on lies and deceit, the other based upon honesty. And guess which one wins out in the long run?

Somehow, the openness about one’s problems renders their bile and poison ineffective. `Lies that fester,’ said Shakespeare, `smell far worse than weeds.’

Those are the words of much known movie Sex, Lies, and Videotapes that this video recalls upon.

This art work represents news which is dealing with memory, movie, visual sensation of nude, the nude as one of the most represented subjects in history of art, the question of gender in representation of nude in art history, potentiality of sexual energy, underlined by Ben E. King’s song ‘Stand by me’ but with its transformed travesty voice. The line of the form of nude appears as drawing with its direct appearing. The voyeurism as subject of the much known movie is present more than ever in ‘contemporary’ of our time, since virtual reality of internet and technical development of digital is allowing using and abusing of sexuality, exposure of vulgar contents in very direct way that is often connected to criminal acts and manipulation of human intimacy. Edge of familiar /unfamiliar behavior is becoming more un-visible and changeable with incorporation of digital pictures, the carnal knowledge is twisting through web tube/ the end of carnality.
