Histoire(s) du cinéma: Virtual Reality: Gender Bender
A Room With Four Views
Four chairs in the middle of a room. Four hosts sitting on four chairs. Four guests inhabiting four hosts. Four symbiotic situations, endless patterns of thought. Four queer fantasies, infinite ways to climax. A love story.
Proposed by HeK, House of Electronic Arts Basel
HeK Basel presents A Room With Four Views by artist Maria Guta, at the invitation of the Locarno Film Festival to contribute to the Gender Bender section. The installation offers four films in virtual reality, encouraging viewers to inhabit foreign bodies and live an erotic experience with fantastic and sensual characters. The artist deliberately embraces a queer and low-tech aesthetic, close to a DIY, countercultural pornographic production.Boris Magrini (HeK)
