A.K. Burns and Katherine Hubbard present film screening Untitled (Shaving performance 2010) at Amsterdam’s Galerie Fons Welters opening November 7 to 11.
The film is a document of a private performance where Hubbard shaves the lower half of Burns’s body in a sensual act that unpicks beauty and fetish and looks at “how desire, intimacy and fetish operate for queer woman through a re-staging of images found at the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco of a gay mens fetish dungeon in the 1970’s.”
The event is part of a week-long sequence of solo shows by emerging video artists, presented one at a time which also included Cheng Ran’s In Course of the Miraculous and Halil Altindere’s Space Refugee.
