For Heterotropics#1, Alex 2000 kindly opened the doors of his incredible house museum, the place where over the years he had produced and assembled sculptures, installations, photographs, drawings and paintings. The whole apartment can be considered as one expanded installation composed of stone assemblages, glitter, fake feathers, tribal symbols, plastic kitchy accessories, food compositions, wooden alter-egos. Among this stunning and sensory collection, the erotic video collage Ami (2009) by Pauline Curnier Jardin was screened on Alex 2000's HD TV.
In this short film, Pauline Curnier Jardin has reunited the photographs of famous museum pieces, ethnographic objects and found objects that she has loved and collected over time. Engaged in a strong associative relationship with the surrounding environment, the video made the visitors' gaze indulge upon the sensual bodies of ancient sculptures, sausages and objects. It made us wonder whether art seeing is always a dirty pleasure. This special exhibition opened Heterotropics#1
