Action Painting No. 1 / No. 2
|Action Painting No. 1 / No. 2
Sex as a mutual creative gesture. In “Action Painting No. 1”, she responds to his movements by scratching his back and leaving blood marks. In “Action Painting No. 2”, he drips candle wax on her back during the sexual act. Both performances result in impulsive visual compositions that redefine Jackson Pollock’s sense of “literally being in the painting”.
