Joséphine Tilloy - EVILA

FR/EN

Evila, sexuality in three times. Pinup, sex bomb, mermaid and other figures turn around, turn over, images, clichés and stereotypes of the inverted lotus, swimming frog and mysterious interview.

By questioning the way social mechanisms sexualize the female body through representation and by questioning female sexuality, Evila is thought as a fiction that explores a musical body-matter around the sexual gesture in a 360 degree space.

The fictional dimension is central. Josephine draws on various sources to construct clichés (female figures and mainstream pornography) that are broken by a ternary rhythm that never stops, thus complexifying the movements of the bodies and creating an original form of intimacy. The three beats break with the binary rhythm, breaking with the representations of an essentially masculine sexuality (perpetual back and forth movement).
