Imagine how bodies will relate to each other in the future, how intimacy will be radically different. Imagine trans and queer bodies having access to ways of mutating organically; reshaping their mortal flesh with their own hands or those of others to suit their desires in the moment, to gender-hack matter; a dance of monsters, of post genital focus, of playful prosthetic fluidity, of empowerment and consent. Picture being the ''voyeur'' of a ritual of transformation where the humanoid animals are not performing sex, but literally making it, researching and finding pleasure in the practice in a post- orgasm world. Creatures redefining the contours of one's envelope, one's vessel, without medical assistance, but with a DIY sensibility and the gutters that earth offers us.
Post-cunt is a 20 minute film about queer intimacy, outside of narrative/productive time with very minimal dialogue. It is an experimental post-porn film which draws material from documenting the results of a 3 day research of a human cluster in a DIY bodylab. It documents the meeting of eco-sexualism & kink, of dysphoria & sculpture together with the contours & their fluidity. The visual result will be determined by the workshop that has yet to come, for now we stand in the virtual.
Lari Jalbert is an art school dropout (NTS2016), a trans* witch animal, a multidisciplinary artist who's focusing on plurality, encompassing the vastness, researching what can't yet be put in words. They are interested in the meeting point of sex, magic, gender and the human has a useless creature. Lari is a trained costume and set designer who approach this medium has a tool for storytelling, for fantasy, but their craft goes from sculpture, to puppetry(l'infâme), to installation & astromagy. This year they worked has an Art Director on two different self-organized queer sci-fi; hron a country of ghosts (feature film, in editing) and Swarm of selenium (24mins, Berlin) which inspired them to jump in and do personal film work. They are based in tiohtià:ke, so called Montreal.
