The video work Andrographie is a collage of fitness and bodybuilding videos joined with clips from gay porn to focus on the aesthetic affinities between the two. Aesthetic borders are dissolving.
Each frame of the clips was therefore printed and the pigments dissolved with the color dissolvent chemical GHB/GBL which is also a popular drug both used for bodybuilding and sex.

Andrographie will be shown in the discoursive program of BERLIN’S NEUE GESELLSCHAFT FÜR BILDENDE KUNST NGBK exhibition CONTESTING/CONTEXTING SPORT, first at ‘GEGEN OLYMPIA’on July 1st.
