As part of Berlin Art Week, L’Atelier-ksr is opening a new joint installation by Clémence de La Tour du Pin and Antoine Renard, titled 1 LUNATIC 1 ICE PICK and running at the Berlin art space from September 15 until October 17.
The on-site eleven-minute video installation takes as its inspiration the story of pornographic actor Luka Rocco Magnotta, who was arrested after uploading a video depicting him stabbing then dismembering his boyfriend with an ice pick and kitchen knife as part of a snuff film gone real -also the subject of last years 24/7 performance at Berlin’s Schaubühne, MEAT.
The installation dives into the world of the dark web, reflecting “its dark spaces of excess entertainment and constant transformation” and drawing attention to our underlining morbid attraction to gore.
