MODERN HOLES is about:
wet holes and dry holes,
techno holes and bio holes,
sticky masculinity and hormones,
fluids and tissues,
depression, dopamine and drugs,
hip hop and poetry.

the title not only refers to our pleasure holes and how they shape our desires, but also to the holes in our hearts and heads, and the ones we hide in because we are fragile and lonely.

what is a hole?
the encyclopedia says:
a hollow place or cavity;
an excavation;
a pit;
an opening in or through a solid body, a fabric, etc.;
a perforation;
a rent;
a fissure;

or is it just absence of matter?
people who know some things about black holes say that the only thing a black hole can spit out is radiation.
because radiation isn’t light, nor matter, so it can escape the gravitational pull of a black hole.

so one could say that this exhibition is an attempt to map the radiation of modern holes, still wet from saliva.
starting by acknowledging that masculinity just like femininity is fiction seven artists will reflect on how this politicohormonal fictions play into the concepts of love and community within their generation of anxiety while trying to break coolness
and fuck with their aloofness.

in chemical anticipation,
ambivalently yours,
VBKÖ
or to say it with ernst jandl:
PHALLUS KLEBT ALLUS

ps:
BANANA SPIT
GEL CLIT
SUCK SLOW
BREATHE LOW
CALYPSO DEEP
ACID SLEEP

pps:
“had a fire in my heart
and a dire desire to aspire
to die hard

the soul’s escaping
through this hole that is gaping
this world is mine for the taking”
(eminem)
