Screening

FILMFEST MÜNCHEN | Licking My Wounds—Body Horror Inside Out

Description

Screening in cooperation with FILMFEST MÜNCHEN on the occasion of the exhibition "Future Bodies from a Recent Past - Sculpture, Technology, Body since the 1950s" with an introduction by Charlie Fox.

 

Program

SCABACTION (USA 1988, Matthew Barney)

Eighty percent of Matthew Barney’s obsessions are fully formed in this video created when he was a mere faun of 19 or 20: goo, orifice fixation, medical procedures, non-human/inanimate entities considered as bodies. “SCABACTION” records the welding of a sculpture, some antics with Vaseline, and the removal of an ingrown hair which, depending on your personal level of squeamishness, will be ghastly or extremely satisfying. The title sounds like a putrid death metal band: perfect.

 

Dead Ringers  (Canada, USA 1988, David Cronenberg)

Birth, sex, and death are recurring themes in body horror. David Cronenberg superbly blends them into a tragic story of identical yet unequal twins (gynecologists even!) who are unable to break their obsessive psychosexual dependence on each other. A work of art ahead of its time, featuring a masterful Jeremy Irons.
