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
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, which play on racial stereotypes, have words with explicit content and other offensive meanings removed. This piece is a response to an invitation to contribute to an exhibition on the topic of sex. Whilst researching online I became increasingly aware that the sub-genre of interracial porn often draws on colonialist stereotypes and tropes to produce and promote content.
