The second instalment of a 6 part series on violence and sexuality — Blicklust juxtaposes 50's S&M, a surgical operation and found footage.
Voyeurism reigns in this display of subtle violence accompanied solely by the relentless sound of traffic outside in the 'real' world. Images of a woman gagged and bound to various apparatuses slowly fade in and out of a bloodless 'hand job'. The clamped open wound — a metaphor for penetration — is a reality with metallic, hospital implements, however the fate of the woman is left open to suggestion. A barrage of visuals including a gaping female mouth all serve to reiterate the objectification of women and the violence that lies under the surface in our society, erupting daily.
