She is not present in their pornography. She is not found in their eroticisms.
She is not even a part of her own fantasy world.
CUTLASS SPRING is what sex might mean to me right now.
I will roam inside a question : How might I locate my sexual identity within a multitude of complimentary and seemingly contradictory identities – as a performer, as a mother, as a daughter, as a lover, as a stranger? I will map a sexual education – with all of its embodiments, fabrications, and disassociations. I will follow these trajectories toward their softest core so as to discover what I hold back and what I make explicit.
She will solicit her body and all of the many things that go with her person. She will realize what remains within her for sexual contemplation. Inching towards uncensorship, engaging the infinite potential of everyday objects, CUTLASS SPRING is, at once, a manifesto and a heated reflection, an ethnography of sexual understanding and an archaeology of desire.
