SHIRLEY HARTHEY UBILLA “Abject of Desire” VR – PERFORMING ARTS
A norm critical primal roar about lesbianism and racialization
A norm critical primal roar about lesbianism and racialization in VIRTUAL REALITY.
”ABJECTION refers to the human reaction (horror, vomit) to a threatened breakdown in meaning caused by the loss of the distinction between subject and object or between self and other”
”DESIRE is to want something strongly. A wish or craving. A large, desperate feeling or need. To express a wish; request. Sexual appetite; lust.”
Abject of Desire portrays an agency, a process which is constantly in relation to contradictions. By doing otherness, Shirley Harthey Ubilla wants to direct the voyeur’s eye, whose perception becomes the mirror of the subject. In pursuit in the self-possession of the self, the carnal desires is embodied by extensions and dislocations of that which is otherwise despised. In this piece, focus is directed at questions regarding lesbianism and race.
