Residency with Ofelia Jarl Ortega - DONNIE
2016/08/18 › 2016/08/24
Ortega, Ofelia Jarl

“Donnie” is a bastard of desire. Our own something, our own bodies’ attraction and destruction. Ecstasy that leads to togetherness, a lesbian continuum, basement moist and cold, (sister)hood of synthesizers, autobiographical-stories yet this is not about us. V3ry much fiction. An around-ness of already known, irrelevant and partly rough, strategic and intuitive methods to live grotesque, very cool, aesthetics.
