The light signet plays with the symbolisms, metaphors and cultural references of seduction and pornography. The well-known form, consisting of a heart with devil's tail and wings is based on a discovered wall graffiti. The object consists of transparent glass tubes and glows in two different colours when switched on. The acoustic background for the light object is based on the theme titles of the films "The Exorcist" and "The Devil in Miss Jones". Rhythmic patterns were taken from the recognition melodies, superimposed and transformed into a new soundtrack by syncopated shifts.  As illuminated advertising, the object refers in an absurd and ironic way to the video work My Intimate Mash Up - Exorcycle and the text work My Intimate Mash Up - Heart, Horn & Devil ´s Tail

For the text piece, the text passages of the respective protagonists (Regan from "The Exorzist" and Justin Jones from "The Devil in Miss Jones") were chronologically transcribed and interwoven into a text collage. The result of this lacing is a pornographic, disorienting text that allows the 12-year-old Regan MacNeil and the young woman Justin Jones to enter into a kaleidoscopic dialogue with each other. 

 

The respective specific fantasies, sadomasochism in horror film and sadism in porn film, are the focus of my adaptations. Masochistic mother-daughter relationships, the rules of female decency, gender relations and explicit questions of sexual identity are thematized.
