Benjamin Ramírez Pérez
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 7:50 | Allemagne, Pays-Bas | 2016
Reenactments of cinematic strategies, images and fantasies tied to sex work and stage performance are layered on top of each other, focusing on embellished surfaces of bodies, objects and architectures. They intertwine and form a new entity in a female drag performance referencing 1970s cinema, sex work activism and pop choreography, which was developed in collaboration with the performance artist Liad Hussein Kantorowicz.
