Venus to Penis

Bradley Eros &
Aline Mare &

»A modern multi-media myth. To explore and expand the realm of eroticism. A mediation between Eros and Psyche: sexual politics, desire and consciousness. Love under will, to change power. Interrogation. Tenderness. Rage. Rapture. Questions. In search of the militant, androgynous-utopian hermaphrodite. A synthesis of live performance, film, edited images, singing, text, ritual and shadow magic.« (Eros/ Mare)

This is how the two artists describe their video tape, which delivers one of the most unconventional and challenging realisations of sexual and violent fantasies from the subconscious. (Petra Unnützer)
