Laura Gozlan’s installation composes a space of performative experience of climax. She positions the moments of theatrically articulated lust and satisfaction into a contrasting and intimate environment disrupted by dark moments which disarray the social standards, and which refer to prosthetic aesthetics or senescence. Together with objects referring to self-restricting and – metaphorically speaking – the effort to pour bodies into stiff, impermeable forms, the artist points out to conceptions that were introduced to us as “inapropriate”, as “tabu”. She confronts our internalized discomfort from unfiltered gratification, sexuality of the elderly or prosthetic bodies... Orgasm thus becomes a mobilizing element, an accelerator. The beginning, the process, the end.
