Rrose Present (Spain) – “Origen del mundo (Eros/Tanatos) o Hiroshima sin amor”, 2015, 03:30
​Series: video “without-camera”interprets “world-camera”
The body as a metaphor of love and war, Eros and Thanatos.​​
The title alludes to two cultural imaginary; Courbet’s famous painting “L’Origine du monde” and the movie of Alain Resnais’ Hiroshima mon amor “.
At the beginning of the movie of Resnais two bodies are shown in attitude of love. Here in “Origen del mundo” I show a sex without love, Hiroshima without love. Only the instinct of sex and death. Where the body becomes the site of the battle between Eros and Thanatos, between pain and pleasure between the informational explosion and an orgasm.
