Kiss-X is a fragment of multiple narratives and a play of tensions explored through familiar features of desire. In this minimal installation the primary motif is lips: two pairs, here protruding from the centre of two large black domed and wall-mounted disks. One pair is modeled after the artists’, banal and expressionless. The other is vertical and open, taken from Matthias Grunewald’s crucified Christ in the famous Isenheim Altarpiece. As both are positioned to face each other, this is where the conversation begins. This exhibition is concerned with love for the other, a haunting eroticism and an affective melancholia thickening the space in between.
