Does this turn you on?

Aluminium, plexiglass, vinyl, lambda print, paper, tissues, ink, walnut wood, glass and paint. 

This exhibition entitled “Does this turn you on?” was divided into two parts with the same theme, pornography. On one side of the exhibition Call Me Frank shows us large-scale works made of plexiglas and vinyl. A flat matt black vinyl is stuck to a reflective black plexiglas, words are cut out of the vinyl and become reflective due to the reflective nature of the plexiglas underneath. Only when the light hits the piece at the right angle will the words become visible, and because the pieces are quit large people will need to move around it before they are able to read the full text. (Tilting your computer screen may result in a better contrast and make it easier to view the words on the images.) The words used are direct copies from the Internet, more specifically they are the words and tag lines used to describe videos on pornographic sites.

The second part of the exhibition shows large-scale Lambda prints of still shots taken from videos of which the titles refer to the first part of the exhibition. The images are blurry pixilated and deformed due to the improper downloading of the videos. As Call Me Frank was streaming the videos onto his computer the internet could not keep up with correctly processing the information and showing the video as it should, while quickly taking several screenshot before the computer could catch up and show the images properly again. “The information flooded onto my computer and was misunderstood, just like in real life pornography is still very much misunderstood and like it or not a big part of our society”.

The title of the series was “ Does this turn you on? ” and puts into perspective the crass nature of these words that should describe our personal lust. The porn industry is probably one of the largest in the world maybe even bigger than brands such as coca cola and Microsoft, and is more legal than cocaine or heroin. By this we can say this must turn us on or the porn industry wouldn’t be this large. Call me Frank finds that by taking these words out of their context they become very banal and in his own words “hilarious”. Porn has always been in our society though we don’t openly speak about it, that is why the works are made in such a way that, the words are there in the room in large scale, yet hidden and only visible when the light hits it just right. Call me Frank wonders if this new language is going to make us more tolerable and create a new standard of acceptance of “normal”. 400 years ago Shakespeare’s themes of love, lust and forbidden desires were seen as vulgar and crass, but his stories stood the test of time. Call me Frank says “To me porn is a collective word of several different forms of sexual desire and gratification, as soon as this desire steps out of our comfort zone or what we perceive as normal we call it pornography”.
