"Tokoha Matsuda: Propositions of Desire - Contours of Erotic Ambiguity"
2006-02-11 until 2006-03-08
Buzzer Thirty
Astoria, NY, USA United States of America

Buzzer Thirty is pleased to announce Propositions of Desire: Contours of Erotic Ambiguity, an exhibition by Tokoha Matsuda. The exhibition will be held at the gallery at Buzzer Thirty, 38-01 23rd Avenue, in the heart of Astoria, and is open to the public.  Propositions of Desire will run February 11 – March 8, 2006. Tokoha Matsuda received her MFA from Hunter College, the City University of New York, after studying at the Art Students League of New York and earning a BA in studio art at Hunter. She also has a BA in behavioral science from Hokkaido University in Japan.

“In my most recent project, Propositions of Desire: Contours of Erotic Ambiguity, I explore the life-death-sex relationship with food as the dominant element. I have a long-held interest in "life and death," of which sex/eroticism is an extension for me. My feminist point of view is also reflected. Foods are basic to life, as one living thing dies to sustain another.

I use fishes, mollusks, meat, animal parts and viscera as death images, but they also evince in me a strong sensuality. In my photo-etchings, I superimpose raw food ingredients and sexual organs or pornographic images; and in digital prints, I examine eroticism in foods. Conflicting sensations such as amusement, beauty or disgust are evoked, as I embrace ambivalence and schizophrenic values within myself and my art.”
