video: Hentai Serbia

The performance began when the audience entering the gallery and the video projection starting. The video tape presented sequences of hentai cartoons together with the images of Serbian politician Kostunica. The music from the video tape was loud and presented a orthodox choral chior together with dramatical electronic music. After the first projection of the video, M and P stood on left and right side of the projection wall. P started with writing text in Serbian [flurry reality] with golden spray. When he finished, M started writing her text [manipulative humanity] with a bronze spray. When M finished writing, they both turned to the audience. M and P had protective masks on their faces. They looked directly at the audience. The end of the video projection was projected on their bodies. The performance ended when the video projection finished.
The performance symbolically presented the reflection of the actual social [unethical], political [corrupted], economic [poverty], religious [seductive], cultural [folkloric] etc. reality in Serbia.The performance also provides a critical and artistic discourse on this ‘pornographic’ industry which effects everyday’s life.
