'LANA CAVE' by Aurélien Potier at Sissi Club, Marseille



LANA CAVE transforms the exhibition place into a symbolic space, mystifying anal ejaculation.

Through a process with which the goal is not to exhibit on, but inside the walls, Aurélien Potier soaks the space with sea water collected at the Montrose - a cruising gay spot in Marseilles. The salt cristals reveal the preciosity of this "sacred water", crossing bodies’ thresholds.

The walls are scrubbed, scratched, darkened with a nervous writing, almost illegible that is not without recalling acts of subjection, assignations to hysteria. The artist here invoques the right for emancipation, pleasure, orgasm.

Building links between inside and outside space, articulating his gesture between two antagonistic mediums - ink and water - he questions the ways knowledge can be transmitted, and pours all over a message that will only be clarified through orality. 

His voice resounds in all the rooms as the music, variating between crystalling and smothered sounds, steps in as a desire for love : "Later my hand was inside his body, all I wanted was to reach his heart and grab it. My head was insanely clear, I never was this close to nothing."
