Sex Art

A space to explore other ways of feeling, enjoy and live sex with art. An expression of our ways of understanding and show life. Photography, illustration, sound installations, performances, body suspensions, presentation of audiovisual materials … a new dimension in the Barcelona Erotic Show. A meeting point for art lovers, for people who enjoy without taboos.

EXHIBITION in SEB2017: Lla ves

Lla ves opens a door to the real world. The one we find on the streets and in the most private side of our lives. It is a debate between what we see and what we are.
We settle down in a space that concentrates the new model of digital consumerism that is present in our daily life. We are surrounded by screens with information, data, images, etc. and if we could take a while to analyse that in detail, we would probably think that it is exceeding the regular moral conventions.
Which are those conventions, those limits for each individual? What do we consider obscene?
Moreover, it pushes us to feel identified with those intimate and sexual points, the joy and the pleasure; with what does not fit with the socially accepted parameters.
We are bombarded 24/7 with violent, sexual images that violate people’s privacy, although they do not really fit with human being’s pleasure.
Lla ves is a reflection on how we feel in front of these public spaces and what awakens deep inside us about individual and collective freedom. Will there be enough keys to open all these taboos?

Manuel Carot

The first collaboration came in the late 90’s by making comics for the porn site “Sexole”, then there would come a time of illustration of role plays to return to porn with series such as “university”, “bones and screws” for the magazine Kiss comix . The theme x was abandoned and began a long period where all the energy was concentrated in creating own series and in collaboration with other scriptwriters for the Franco-Belgian market, series that have been edited in the United States, Canada, the South American market, for all Europe, China and Japan.

The last stage has been marked by the gradual abandonment of the pencil and the discovery of the art of tattooing and painting, recovering in this last discipline the passion for the erotic, for PORNOGRAPHY.
