The Big Kiss

On October 10 2009 , from 7pm to 10 pm, Over The Opening is pleased to present The Big Kiss, a performance installation by Annie Abrahams.

OTO N6 Street, Brooklyn New York

What’s contact in a machine mediated world? What’s the power of the image? How does it feel to kiss without touching? Does the act change because we see it? What does it mean to construct an image with your tongue? And is there still desire? Does the act provoke it? What’s contact in a machine mediated world?

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’s better! This might be a female view point.

Video : 5 min extract while performing with Mark RiverIf not available you can watch the video on vimeo.
A 20 min hi-res version is available for projections and installations on demand.

The Big Kiss (français)

Image de la performance / vidéo “L’un la poupée de l’autre” avec Nicolas Frespech,  26 mai 2007, Centre Pompidou, Paris.

Le 10 octobre entre 19 et 22h 10,  Over The Opening présente The Big Kiss, une performance installation de Annie Abrahams.

Qu’est-ce que c’est le contact dans un monde où tout est médié par une machine ? Quelle est la puissance de l’image? Qu’est-ce qu’on ressent quand on s’embrasse sans se toucher ? L’acte change-t-il parce que nous le voyons ? Qu’est-ce que ça signifie de construire une image avec sa langue ? Y a-t-il encore du désir ? L’acte le provoque-t-il ? Qu’est-ce que c’est le contact dans un monde où tout est médié par une machine ?

Si vous êtes à New York, vous êtes invité à participer à la création d’un baiser collective à OTO.
