IS THE RECRUM A GRAVE?
Is The Rectum A Grave? is a sound installation by Seroconversion, combining several different elements. A piece of wall, attatched. There are scribbles on it – a telephone number with the encouraging message “CALL ME” and the word “GLORY” with an arrow pointing to a hole in the wall. From the hole the sound of a tape loop can be heard.
If the telephone number is called (or was, it is now defunct) an ansering machine is heard, and you have the oppurtunity to leave a message. The title is a reference to the essay with the same name by Leo Bersani.
The installation was a commission for an evening of the queer club F.I.S.T. in Stockholm, Sweden, 2016.
