The Big Kiss in Ljubljana

The Big Kiss (20 & 21 June 2009)
Live Internet Broadcast Performance by Annie Abrahams (Ljubljana)

The Big Kiss in Ljubljana

“Machine mediated kissing in a performance = drawing with your tongue = taking pleasure, while constructing an image = a way to be superaware of the other = never totally abandoning yourself = ???????? = not at all like real kissing, it is better! This might be a female point of view.”
Annie Abrahams

Pascale Gustin commented this video: “L’image du baiser, ou plutôt de l’acte d’embrasser, comme j’ai pu le voir dimanche, dans cette performance, me semble une forme de communication très primaire et très belle. Un langage primordial d’avant le langage, animal ***les léchouilles des primates!!!!***. C’est très fort, je crois, mais on n’en perçoit pas toute la dimension lors de la performance en ligne. Par contre, c’est tout à fait pertinent dans cette vidéo…”
