METTE INGVARTSEN (BE/DK)
Now they are all finally presented together: the four extra-sharp Red Pieces by Mette Ingvartsen, to come (extended), 7 Pleasures, 21 pornographies and 69 positions. In her series, the Danish artist reflects on the history of sexuality, as it has been shown in performance and performance art since the 1960s to today. In her pieces, Ingvartsen deals with nudity and gender relations in very different artistic compositions, with the cultural construction and manipulation of bodies up to the ways how we have sex together. Ingvartsen encounters all this with wit and sensuality, political sensitivity and great candor.
Orgies, excesses and sexual liberation – what remains of the 1960s, their visionary new gender relations and their traces in dance and performance? This is what Danish choreographer Mette Ingvartsen puts up for discussion in the first part of her Red Pieces cycle, which she began five years ago. As the starting point she devised an exhibition through which she takes the audience herself. Naturally, the artist deviates from the usual guided-tour conventions while calling, for example, Carolee Schneeman’s legendary performance Meat Joy or Richard Schechner’s Dionysus in 69 to mind. Ingvartsen’s glimpse into the future is a real adventure, including orgasm re-enactment, gender hacking and sexual mummification. Visitors can move about freely and will discover that eroticism and the intellect lovers.
