She Whose Blood Is Clotting in My Underwear
She Whose Blood Is Clotting in My Underwear was made for Vika Kirchenbauer’s music/performance project COOL FOR YOU. The point of departure is her preoccupation with »enhanced vision« through infrared technology in modern warfare. Her video work uses the same technology, creating the effect of »enhanced voyeurism« to focus on relationships between bodies, intimacy but also the privileged view of the audience.
