Unfolding of Bodies in the Construction of the Countersexual Society

Bruno Novadvorski 
Chris, The Red

This article presents the artistic works proposed and developed by the Brazilian visual artists Bruno Novadvorski — with the lambe-collage series ZONA DE PRAZER (Pleasure Zone), and Chris, The Red with the photo-performance installation CONTRANOME: CHRIS (Countername: Chris). To add up to their research on human sexuality, and its unfolding in society, both feature the concepts of the contemporary philosopher Paul B. Preciado, author of the Countersexual Manifesto, a study on contemporary issues that reflect on sexuality, identities, bodies and resignification of social dichotomies, proposing the construction of a countersexual society that has become the guiding thread of the two following series of artistic work, which entitle this article.

Keywords: Preciado; countersexuality; body; lambe-lambe; photo-performance installation.
