For the past couple of days, we’ve been posting erotic GIFs from Faith Holland‘s collection GIFs to Have Sex By. The series of GIFs from more than forty different artists will be screened tomorrow night at the closing reception for Holland’s solo exhibition Technophilia, at Brooklyn’s Transfer Gallery from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m.
Holland sent us a sampling of these very-Graphic Interchange Fornications, and below are some of the highlights:
This GIF from Tristan Stevens starts out with a seed violently slamming from one plinth to the next. The only stirring that causes in my loins is a contraction of the cremaster muscle. But lo and behold, what should spring forth from that seed but an eggplant, perhaps the most erotically loaded of emojis. So much so, that Instagram banned it as a hashtag. I’m a vegetarian, so I never eat meat, but like many rebelliously sexual ex-Catholics, I’m sure going to miss “Eggplant Friday.”
Adriana Minoliti’s GIF is dripping moist with nostalgia. Don’t those humping graphics bring you back to the days of dial-up modems, when porn took longer to load than you did? And what’s sexier than midcentury modernism. Just imagine sweaty palms sliding across that formica surface, bare feet struggling to grip that sensuously plush carpet. Swoon.
Uh, is it just me, or does this GIF from Christian Petersen kind of remind you of the AFC logo? If you see the artist at the screening tomorrow night, ask him if he felt inspired by New York City’s sexiest art blog.
