Twenty-five Profiles (Extracts from Interracial Adult Marketing Material with Explicit Words Taken Out)
2015, Digital HD file from found text: 16:9, 11 minutes and 55 seconds, b&w, silent
First exhibited at Sprechsaal, Berlin, 2015
Text based video work composed of phrases extracted from profile descriptions of female porn-actors listed on a website specialising on white-female/black-male interracial pornographic content. The phrases have words with explicit content and other offensive meanings removed. Online, the sub-genre of interracial porn often draws on colonialist stereotypes and racial tropes to produce and promote content. This piece asks the extent to which audiences are conversant with such strategies.
