Your Skin Makes Me Cry

The exhibition of single-channel video works Your Skin Makes Me Cry is the result of a competition held at tertiary institutions in Germany. The title phrase, coined from the Radiohead song Creep, speaks about intimacy – the physical and emotional contact, happiness and pain it involves, as well as referring to the adolescent struggle for selfhood and the ongoing quest for personal identity. Your Skin Makes Me Cry further speaks about a social context – the staging of the self and the shattering of gender stereotypes. The individual works range from highly personal evaluations of the artist’s own role to critical appraisals of material found online; from observations on everyday realities of relationships, meditations on sexuality to conceptually-minded works focused on queer identities and gender.
