Lisa Anne Auerbach: Torn Porn

Posted by Rob Alderson,

We all know the feeling, it’s the late 1980s, you’re in Chicago O’Hare airport and you stumble across some torn up porn magazines…what’s that? Ok, us neither but luckily that did happen to American artist Lisa Anne Auerbach, who stored the curious artefacts for years before making these intriguing pieces. Blown up to 52″ × 44″ inches, the scraps take on a life of their own, a glimpse of vintage erotic glamour or a seedy testament to our relationship with stifled sexuality? Lisa believes they were scattered by a guilty businessman returning from a trip, and the act of destruction and what it meant adds a powerful new dimension to the project.
