please

ZEICHNUNGEN

„— There is a tendency I have, I want to please you. In fact, I oscillate quite often between my own pleasure and yours. I wonder: How to negotiate boundaries and politics i overstep in this delicate relation created through my own pleasure and desire.“

In her drawings the performing artist Natascha Moschini investigates concepts of pleasure and pleasing within her own bodily practice. She develops figures that explore expectations, social tenseness and gaze regimes. They play with ambiguities that are inherent in the word please and trace internalized violence throughout the relationship towards their own body.
